Strange things lurk up in the mountains and out in the plains and deserts of the West, but few are as unique as the giant mountain man named Amos Malone, the man some called Mad Amos, though not to his face. But when the world gets weird, there's no one who's better to have on your side...

Is a renegade dragon harassing the men laying the rails of the great railroad? Are headless Indian spirits driving you from your land? Is that volcano threatening to destroy your settlement? Then Mad Amos is the man for you.

Plus two new, never-before-published stories in the Mad Amos canon:

When a horse thief sets his sights on stealing Amos’s faithful mount Worthless, he gets more than he expects… for Worthless isn’t exactly an ordinary horse…

Mad Amos takes to the high seas on a whale of an adventure and thwarts a vengeful South Pacific island shaman at this own game.

Ten delightful stories of dragons, jackalopes, snake-oil salesmen, iron horses, and, of course, the incomparable Mad Amos Malone from the incredible imagination of world-class storyteller and bestselling author Alan Dean Foster!
