Movie Mondays

3:10 to Yuma

Book (short story), 1953 by Elmore Leonard

Trust was rare and precious in the wide-open towns that sprung up like weeds on America's frontier—with hustlers and hucksters arriving in droves by horse, coach, wagon, and rail, and gunmen working both sides of the law, all too eager to end a man's life with a well-placed bullet. The New York Times-bestselling Grand Master of suspense deftly displays the other side of his genius, with classic western tales of destiny and fatal decision . . . and trust as essential to survival as it is hard-earned.
