Indexer Notes

Originally credited to Parkhurst, but this is the same artist as on about 23 of the preceding Buck Jones stories, Ralph Carlson. He can be recognized by his horses: very long, narrow, tapering heads with two marked lines leading to the nostrils and by the movement of the legs. Not so many horses in this story, but the dog on page 3 has the same outstretched front legs as many of his horses. Compare with his Buck Jones stories and the Rocky Lane stories by Carlson.
