“These are some of the most purely entertaining pulp Western yarns you’ll ever read.”—James Reasoner

Hit the owlhoot trail as naive Simon Bolivar Grimes, tassle-headed youth from Georgia, sets off for Crocket County, Texas searching for his Uncle Carter.

E. Hoffmann Price, immediately following the death of his close friend Robert E. Howard, created Simon Bolivar Grimes in the slap-leather tradition of Howard’s own popular humorous Western tales of Breckinridge Elkins.

Debuting in Spicy Western Stories in 1937, Grimes boasts, brawls, rambles and rolls his way from outlaw to hero, learning a little bit about living and loving along the way.  Collected in Nomad’s Trail are the first twelve stories of this long-running saga.

With an introduction by Spur Award nominee James Reasoner.
