    1. This was my first read from Marshall Grover, Drift is an enjoyable read, Larry and Stretch are likable characters and definitely will read of his books The coolest thing with electronic e books, is the gold mine available to readers, then you have publishers like Piccadilly Publishing who make long out of print series available again to readers, then you end discovering a gem Drift and a new author to read Drift was originally published in 1956, Marshall Grover is a Australian author, it takes [...]


    2. This is an action packed, funny start to long lived western series It s even interesting to know it was written by an Australian in the 1950s I highly recommend this book and will definitely be reading .


    3. nice start to the series, pretty much sets the tone for hundreds Larry and Stretch stories aka Larry and Streak when published by Bantam in the 1960 s 70 s


    4. This 1956 novel featuring two Texans in the 1800 s American West was written by an Australian I noted only one bit of Australian slang but there could be which I didn t notice It is a pretty straight forward story written in a simple, direct style which focuses on action not character development A quick read rather than a great novel of the American west The author, Leonard Frank Meares, wrote over 700 books for the Australian paperback trade All or most were Westerns written under pen names.



    5. DriftThis was a really good book Has a lot of action and it is funny also Those texans sure do get in a lot of trouble Look forward to the next Larry Stretch.
