Both were made into Hollywood films.The Night Riders (1906)College graduate John Tresler is aching to become a rancher so he moves west and falls in love with the wrong woman. This tale of the outback would not be complete without outlaw gangs led by a shadowy man named Red Mask, after his disguise. Those who were able to identify him met with an untimely death.The Way of the StrongExcerpt:...The load on the sled was nearing completion. The tough-looking, keen-eyed man bestowed his chattels with a care and skill which told of long experience, and a profound knowledge of the country through which he had to travel. Silently he passed back and forth between the sled and the weather-battered shelter which had been his home for more than three years. His moccasined feet gave out no sound- his voice was silent under the purpose which occupied all his thought. He was leaving the desert heart of the Yukon to face the perils of the winter trail. He was about to embark for the storm-riven shores of the Alaskan coast...About The AuthorRidgwell Cullum (pseudonym of Sidney Groves Burghard) (1867 – 1943) was a British writer of adventure novels, usually set in sparsely populated regions of the USA or Canada. He left home aged 17 to join a gold rush in the Transvaal in South Africa, where he became involved in the conflict between British and Boer settlers- he travelled to the scene of another gold rush in Yukon in north-west Canada- he spent a few years cattle-ranching in Montana, USA. His first novel The Devils Keg, set in Alberta, Canada, was published in 1903. After its success he settled in Britain and became a full-time writer. Several of his novels were made into Hollywood films.Books by Ridgwell Cullum:The Devils Keg (US: The Story Of The Foss River Ranch) (1903)The Hound From The North (1904)In the Brooding Wild (1905)The Night Riders (1906) - made into a film (1920)The Watchers Of The Plains (1908)The Compact (1909)The Sherriff Of Dyke Hole (1909)The Trail Of The Axe (1910) - made into a film (1922), featuring Dustin Farnum and George FisherThe One-Way Trail (1911)The Twins Of Suffering Creek (1912) - made into a film The Man Who Won (1923), directed by William A.
