The Shopkeeper James Best

Several of the reviewers of this book said that they were going to rush off and read more by this author. It is a western, and gives what must be a good picture of life on the frontier, but Steve Dancy, the main character, isn't just another cowhand. He is a wealthy gun-store owner from New York City, who comes west ( I'm not sure why) and ends up involved with banks, mortgages, corrupt politicians, and gun slingers, and the Pinkertons. And there is an unrequited love interested. A really good story, even for someone who never really liked "Westerns."
