Publisher's Summary

Charles Alden Seltzer was a contemporary of Zane Grey and, for much of his life, lived in the shadow of Grey. He is not as well known as Grey, but his books fit nicely into that Western romance genre, and his best books rival Grey's for both adventure and romance. Critics consider The Boss of the Lazy Y his very best work, on par with anything that Grey wrote.

The story concerns a complicated, angry son, Calumet Marston, who returns to his boyhood homestead to find his hated father dead and a stranger, a woman named Betty, in charge. Her family had aided his father, and now she is "the boss".

His father's will stipulates certain conditions before Calumet can take over, including repairs to the ranch and to the relationship he had with his dad. Several letters Betty has lead Calumet to a new understanding of his father and their stormy history. Murder, gun fights, ambush, ancient treasure - it's all here. This story is one you'll find hard to leave alone.
