Novel - The Allens
Novel – The Allens Number 43 – When I originally saw this book for sale, I mis-read the title as “The Aliens”. I thought I’d really like to read a novel like that. Then I realized that the title was “The Allens”. The book is actually an abbreviated version of another novel, with the characters’s names changed from Ballenger to Allen. The plot is described as “A scheme of a wily land agent to obtain some valuable western lands for a song. A kidnapping, a murder, and a sagacious dog named Young Kate are the main points of interest.” How can you pass that up?
