James Buckley Armstrong?called Buck by most people who know him?can't say no when he is asked to protect the girl sitting across from him in the stagecoach. What he doesn't know is the man they are on their way to visit, her Uncle Clarence, is in jail waiting for the hangman. Clarence has not denied he was once part of the Henry Plummer gang, and when the hangman arrives, he'll pay the price. But before that happens, he wants Buck to help the girl find Plummer's hidden stash of stolen gold. Buck knows he doesn't want her to live with the memory of his hanging, and he isn't sure about the gold, either?but unfortunately, there are others who want both the hanging and the gold.
Waiting for the Hangman Hardback edition by Carlton Youngblood
James Buckley Armstrong, called Buck by most people who knew him, couldn't turn Professor Fish down when he was asked to take on the job of protecting the girl sitting on the bench of rocking stagecoach across from him. What neither of them knew was the man they were on their way to visit, her Uncle Clarence, was in jail waiting for the hangman.
Somebody doesn't like the idea of James Buckley Armstrong coming to help a recently widowed woman. His welcome to the basin is an ambush that leaves one man dead. The problems facing the young widow are overpowering. Buck doesn't know where to start, but after he is ambushed for a second time and beaten unconscious, he gets mad.
James Buckley Armstrong, or Buck to his friends, has been asked to look after a company of palaeontologists as they search for dinosaur bones on rangeland owned by Big John Calhourn. Stumbling onto a bunch of rustlers is only the first problem he faces. Called a rustler and a liar by Big John's stepson, Buck is saved by the rancher's older son.
