Westerns (traditional)

In the manner of classic westerns by Zane Grey, William McLeod Raine, Max Brand, Louis L'Amour, and others. These stories usually feature a hero who, like a Knight of the Range, answers the call to adventure, rescues damsels in distress, and brings bad guys to justice. His idealism drives him to right wrongs and/or seek vengeance for injustices done to innocent people.
