Western fiction is defined primarily by being set in the American West in the second half of the 19th century and, secondarily, by featuring heroes who are rugged, individualistic horsemen (cowboys). Other genres, such as romance, have sub-genres that make use of the Western setting.

When Dundee undertook to find out who was rustling Titus's cattle, he knew he'd have to ride in alone to Blue Roan's territory. There was no other way to pin the guilt on a specific person - and it had to be specific. Because Blue Roan was an old reprobate, a one-time pal of Titus, who had gone bad. If Titus could find out for sure it was Blue Roan who was stealing him blind, he'd nail the man. But he had to be sure. And what Dundee found out made a shooting war out of a simmering feud.

Mr Gershel, dirtied up and unshaven after early hours working his fields, he looked out of place on the swept stoop in the recently white-painted doorframe flanked by shiningly clean windows. 'Mornin' to you, stranger,' he growled, unsmiling. 'Joanne, what you doin' ridin' with a stranger?' His Tennessee dialect was more pronounced than that of the girl. As he spoke, somebody else moved in the shadowed interior of the house behind him. 'Name's Baraaby Gold, Mr Gershel. Bring you some bad news.'
