Hopalong Cassidy, the iconic western cowboy hero conceived by Clarence Mulford, was immortalized in a highly popular film series starring William Boyd from 1935-1948. A tough-talking and violent character in print, Hopalong Cassidy was remade into a clean-cut screen hero who roamed the West with his sidekicks and fought villains who took advantage of the weak. Here Cassidy is drawn as Mulford originally conceived; rough-and-tumble, foul-mouthed, and thriving on brawls and gunplay.
Set in the raw, unforgiving American frontier, this action-packed classic pits Hopalong Cassidy and the rest of the Bar-20 crew against a violent gang of vigilantes.

Absolutely. Mumford is an outstanding writer. Such romance in his descriptions - he paints a picture of the old west that comes straight from personal experience. The poetry of his language is almost impossible to match these days.
Besides that - his characters are so rich. Picture the group in Young Guns (Estevez, Sutherland, Phillips, Sheen, etc.) but more gritty and bad-*ss; while at the same time hilarious with their brotherly digs and unwavering commitment to each other.
The view into Hopalong's softer side. Seeing Hopalong, the baddest of the bad, become a complete mess around a lady is pretty funny.
Thought I was listening to Sam Elliot narrate for a bit! He has a very rich, grit to his voice that really captures the essence of an Old West tale. Great stuff!
Check out The Coming of Hopalong and Bar-20 as well. All three are really quite impressive
