Me an' Gus / James D. Crownover.


"When Comanches killed their fathers, young Sutter Lowery and August Bell became the primary supporters of their families until their mothers married again. One night, Gus's mother is beaten again by her husband. Gus kills Ben and dumps the body in a sinkhole. That night, Sut an' Gus hit out for tall cane. And thus begins the odyssey of Sut and Gus into the world of cattle drives, rustlers, Indians, horses, and manhood. Sut discovers he has inherited his mother's gift of prescience and rescues two white children from a Comanche trap. At the crossing of the Arkansas, Gus and Sut work to eliminate a gang of thugs from control of the ford. In Abilene they attempt to stop a kid from rolling a drunk-and end up wanted by half the town and a bunch of vaqueros. They battle an old Mountain Man who is killing the ranch's cattle. When the Indians are subdued, they move to the Llano Estacado, discover a wounded Russian wolfhound, and establish a ranch"-- Provided by publisher.
