Ruth fielding at Silver Springs Ranch
Day 2 of Ruth Fielding week; this one was my favorite of the ones I’m posting this week. There is a lot of action and the dude ranch sounds so exciting; no wonder it was my favorite.
Ruth goes to Montana to Silver Springs Ranch and the puzzling mysteries of this and the last book is finally solved. The photo is of Ruth on the horse fighting off the wolf who wanted the near dead man in the shack. That whole incident was gruesome, but Ruth clubs the wounded beast and kills him.
I love the descriptions of the ranch and cow punchers… Bashful Ike loves Sally the schoolteacher…Ruth learns better horsemanship…Mary cox is connected to the Tintacker mine. Just another one of Ruth’s splendid adventures; recommended by me!
