What to expect

Harry Camden came out of the wilderness unwillingly, attracted by a girl being used as bait. Sparrow Roberts, a fight manager, used this young lady to lure Harry into his own sphere, for he knew that Camden had a truly devastating punch.

But fighting wasn't what Harry really wanted. Unimpressed by the blandishments of civilization, he drifted into a life of drunkenness and crime, culminating in the theft of the great stallion Crusader, a horse that no one but Camden could ride.

Crusader is an imperishable story of adventure, conflict, and human achievement, a thrilling narrative of a legend of the American West in the making.
