This is a cover design for the short story The Flaming Stallion, written in 1948 by my grandfather, James Carl Propp. I believe it may have been published in the Canadian magazine, The Star Weekly.
SYNOPSIS
WILD HORSE HUNTERS BEWARE!
WE SHOOT FIRST, ASK QUESTIONS LATER.
– CIRCLE K RANCH. C.L. KIRBY, OWNER.
Bill Calico is on a mission. Find the coveted stallion, Firebrand, for his boss old “Bull” Haggerty, or kiss his job goodbye—and his dream of owning his own rodeo along with it.
Faced with rival mustangers, a formidable wild stallion, and an angry ranch owner, Calico must draw on every skill he’s got to fight for not only his career, but his life.
This piece is part of a personal design project, titled Short Proppositions, to design covers for short stories written by my grandparents James and Dixie Propp.
