The seventh man. By Max Brand.

The seventh man. A man under thirty needs neighbors and to stop up the current of hislife with a long silence is like obstructing a river-eventually thewater either sweeps away the dam or rises over it, and the stronger thedam the more destructive is that final rush to freedom. Vic Gregg was onthe danger side of thirty and he lived alone in the mountains allthat winter.

For one form he looked above all, a big man who rode somewhat slanting;but Vic Gregg was not among the crowd, and . The revolver at his side, therifle in the case, were for the seventh man who must die for Grey Molly

For one form he looked above all, a big man who rode somewhat slanting;but Vic Gregg was not among the crowd, and for the rest, Barry had nowish to come within range of their harm. The revolver at his side, therifle in the case, were for the seventh man who must die for Grey Molly. These who followed him mattered nothing-except that he must not comewithin their reach. He studied them calmly as they swept nearer, fifteenchosen men as he could tell by their riding, on fifteen choice horsesas he could tell by their gait.

Seven For One. Dangerous men were no novelty for Gregg. He had lived with them, workedwith them, as hard-fisted himself as any, and as ready for trouble, butthe man of the mountain-desert has a peculiar dread for the practiced,known gun-fighter

The Seventh Man book. Max Brand uses typical western story themes and situations to pull the reader in and then twists things around to write a treatise on relationship psychology, true love, and real courage. I think this one might be interesting even to those who don't like Westerns. I read it as a free Gutenberg Project EBook on my ipad.

I enjoyed this book. It is a Western, takes place in nice scenery (which is what I most appreciate about Westerns), with frequent descriptions of forests and horses and good old-fashioned Western folk. It might have been a little far-fetched at times (the man of legend is really pretty legendary with his feats) but it was an enjoyable, easy story with a surprising and fitting end. I would recommend it.

My biggest complaint is likely due only to the digital conversion - there are a ton of totally unnecessary commas sprinkled liberally throughout the whole book, leading to some stunted sentences. I learned to ignore them but it was an annoyance. I assume it is the conversion rather than the author that placed the commas there but who knows.

This is an excellently written story with action, compelling drama & at tmes nail biting suspense. I've read many of Max Brand's books, but this has become my absolute favorite. The characters are well developed & the plot is engaging. I couldn't put it down. It is so much more than a typical western (though I do love the genre). I rooted for the villian despite his dreadful deeds. There is an eerie component to this story that will stick with me for a long time. The wordless understanding the main character shares with his unusual companions is chilling, but simultaneously endearing - an odd mix of emotions for any story - which only proves the talent of the author. I didn't want the story to end. Read this book, I'm sure you'll enjoy it! The Kindle edition does have some typos, but not enough to drive me crazy.

This is a strange, almost Grimm Fairy Tale like, story. It's about a wild man who has a bond with a black dog, a black stallion, a wife, and their daughter. As the story opens he is trying to give up his wild ways but events intercede and he is set on the path back to the "wild." It is a story about the struggle between the wild and the civilized.

For the most part I liked the tale but there were parts where I lost interest and plodded on to finish. It is not a story that captures you on the first page and holds you in it's grip as you race to the end.

Dan seems a cross between a werewolf or vampire with his otherworldly ability to connect to his wolf, Black Bart, or his black stallion Satan. The three have an uncanny understanding of each other that surpasses verbal messages from master to animal. Throw in Dan’s quicksilver speed as a gunfighter whose aim is legendary and you have a mix that will keep you turning pages trying to find if he can survive in the old west among people who shoot first and ask questions later. Quite a change from the usual western story but one to be long remembered.

If it was written with less quality, (or by someone else?) I would have given it 2 stars for the following reasons: (Note: may contain some spoilers).

I didn't cozy up to any of the many characters. There were few people I could look up to, enjoy or even care about.

"Whistling"Dan Barry was unexplainably too powerful, unless the reader wanted to believe he obtained his powers from below. He communicated with his horse and wolf-dog as if they spoke English. He could shoot with accuracy facing backwards from a running horse. His eyes turned yellow when angry. What's up with that?

There was an atmosphere of some sort of mystical powers at play that were not explained.

"Satan" the horse, had unbelievable stamina and intelligence. Ran full-speed for 100 miles, then jumped 6 foot fence? Unbelievable.

"Black Bart" the wolf-dog was smarter than any character in the book. Much smarter and more dangerous.

"Whistling Dan's" five/six year old daughter Joan was out of control and seemed threatening to her mother. A weird child.

The basis of the story was odd. Seven men had to die at the hands of Dan Barry - for the death of a horse that didn't even belong to him. And he was willing to give up his wife to fulfill his mission.

Dan Barry was almost defeated by the use of the telephone - and he didn't even know the telephone existed. This, even though Dan seemed to be aware of everything else in the tiny towns he did his killing in. Unbelievable.

About half way through the book, I correctly figured out the ending and there was no surprise for me. It was apparent to me based upon the building disintegration of relationships.

This is not your typical "Western".

But I gave it 5 stars anyway because I enjoyed the wonderful writing. If you just want to go along for the ride and let the unexplainably odd things happen, and don't mind super-powered animals - you'll enjoy it too.

I beg to differ with those who say his books aren't literature. His writing is so poetic in nature that you feel an easy flow of the story as he transitions from person to person and scene to scene. If Dan were living in this day and age he would be considered a social deviant and probably schizophrenic,so the character is not so unbelievable to me

Brand's books seldom start with a crash of action. One has to push through the set up to the story, and then they will get caught up in Brand's unique twists and turns.

Brand's writing style is more stilted than contemporary writers, which may require some adjustment on the part of the reader, but he still knows how to keep you reading.

Fans of the Western genre won't be disappointed.
Once that hurdle was passed the book became irresistible. The ending seemed bland yet, it was perfect. I you are seeking an action and suspenseful read, this is the book.
