Cowboy DogBook - 2006
Chester Farlowe was twelve when the coward Stronson shot his daddy down. Chester left the vast cattle ranches of New Zealand's central Volcanic Plateau for the badlands of urban Auckland. There he was given shelter by Henry Stroud, proprietor of the 1 Fry burger bar, and re-christened Mr Dog. There, too, he met the girl, Spoons. Now, six years later, he is back in those lands where the pylons march across the sky, and looking for revenge. Stronson is waiting, and there must be a showdown. But first there are others to contend with - Boss Lennox, Cook, the Sultation Kid, the seductive and inscrutable Miss Peet.
