The title story, The Hanging Tree, is based on a true episode in Montanas gold-mining past. Three amazing characters meet: the cynical Doc Frail; the boy robber named Rune, whom Doc saves and enslaves; and Elizabeth, the young easterner who survives an Indian assault and comes under the care of Doc and Rune. In the gold-mining camp of Skull Creek Elizabeth becomes the mysterious Lucky Lady. A vigorous, psychological western, The Hanging Tree was made into a movie starring Gary Cooper.
The stories in this book consolidate Dorothy M. Johnsons reputation for authenticity and artistic integrity.

Fully as arresting are The Last Boast, Journal of Adventure, I Woke Up Wicked, The Gift by the Wagon, A Time for Greatness, The Story of Charley, and Blanket Squaw.
