Bull Hunter was a young western boy of unusual size who eventually became known as the “Gentle Giant.” Because of his stature and prodigious strength, along with a sort of natural timidity, Bull was often derided, even by his cousins, as being “slow” mentally. Eventually, he met and was befriended by a famous gunfighter who taught him how to use a gun. That changed a lot of derogatory opinions about him, and he didn’t get bullied anymore. This is the story of the adventures of Bull Hunter, a Western story, of course, but also a close look at the the unique central character.The author was Max Brand, one of the pen names of Fredrick Faust, who used more than eighteen of them through his career, writing not only Westerns but also historical fiction, detective mysteries, and spy novels, in an estimated thirty million words over the years. Max Brand became so well known as a writer of Westerns that the name became famous on its own merits. Listen now to an example of the exceptional Faust/Brand literary ability.
