Two short stories and something like a novella (Canyon Walls). I found each to be lacking in one way or another, but nothing kept me from finishing them. If you prefer John Wayne to Clint Eastwood, you will probably like these better than if your preference is the other way around. If you are looking for something a little less pulpy and romantic, you might try The Complete Western Stories of Elmore Leonard. Disclaimer: I read the Elmore Leonard stories so I can't vouch for the narration.
