Dallas -- Will F. Jenkins (aka Murray Leinster)

Have you read it? Is it any good? I like a lot of Leinster's science fiction, but have not read a western by him.

I haven't read this one. I read one Leinster western and wished I hadn't, so I've been leery of reading any others.

It was from the '40s, or earlier, had a lot of phonetically spelled dialogue, and was slow.
