BRECKINRIDGE ELKINS, the gent from Bear Creek, is one of the most engaging characters it has been our good fortune to encounter for a very long time. Six and a half feet tall, possessing the strength of an ox and the modesty of a Munchausen, Breckinridge is the terror of the Humboldt Mountains. His adventures in Chawed Ear, War Paint, Grizzly Claw and other roaring towns of the plains, are related in the racy vernacular of the backwood and make most hilarious and entertaining reading. Here is a book of the Bret Harte vintage, so full of life and so rich in touches of unconscious humor, that no one can fail to come under the influence of the inimitable Breckinridge. Of one thing we are certain, we have never read anything quie like A Gent from Bear Creek before. We present, in order of first publication in ACTION STORIES, the first ten Breckinridge Elkins stories by Conan author, Robert E. Howard.
