Alan Taylor was reared by an ex-Texas Ranger in Central Texas. While his father was off to the Civil War a friend of his aunt taught Alan how to use a handgun. After three years of practicing, Alan became very skilled with its use. A friend of the gunsmith was an ex-prize fighter. He taught Alan how to use his fists. At 18 Alan was well over six feet and with the prize fighter’s teaching, became as skilled with his fists as he was a gun.
Alan got into a fight with the foreman of a ranch and beat him badly. The foreman brought the ranch’s top gun and confronted Alan. Alan tried to talk his way out, but ended up not only killing the top gun, but two other ranch hands who drew on him. The rancher was outraged and sent for Jack Wesley, known as the fastest gun in Texas. Alan was lucky in the gunfight and killed Wesley and his reputation was now set.
Alan went to Austin to college and was hired by the sheriff as a night jailer. During his time as a deputy sheriff, Alan solved many crimes. His story is filled with thrilling adventures which will keep the reader on the edge of his seat.
