JOHNSTONE COUNTRY. WILDER THAN EVER. Welcome to the Lost Coyote Saloon. Saddle up to the bar and order a whiskey. Play a few hands of poker. But don't make any trouble. The new owner is savage. Ben Savage. Once a Texas Ranger, he's always cocked and ready for some fool to come looking for payback . . . EAT, DRINK, AND BE WARY When Ben Savage receives a telegram informing him that an old friend died-and left him his saloon-he's not sure what to think. Western saloons are as wild as it gets, full of rowdy ranchers and cocky cowboys, high-stakes gamblers and low-life drifters, hard liquor and easy women. Then there's the occasional outlaw gang. But when Savage travels to Buzzard's Bluff, Texas, to check out his inheritance, he meets the saloon's lovely manager, Rachel Baskin, and has a change of heart. As an experienced lawman, he figures he can run a decent establishment. Keep things friendly, peaceful, and orderly. There's just one problem: as a longtime Pinkerton agent, Ben has made a lot of enemies. And some of them are bound to turn up in his saloon-thirsty for whiskey . . . and revenge . . . Live Free. Read Hard.

Figures of mobility appear prominently in US-foundational narratives of 'discovery,' the 'Puritan errand,' and westward expansion, the protagonists of these hegemonic tales of settlement and nation-building are (mostly) European travellers, pioneers, and colonists. By contrast, figures such as pirates, drifters, and fugitives are for the most part absent from canonical narratives of new world beginnings and may be considered as expressing/representing alternative mobilities. Their stories and their representations raise questions of legitimacy and legality - often from a transnational perspective - and imply a critique of the American empire and its concomitant domestic discourses of marginalization. Yet, pirates, drifters, and fugitives also appear as ambiguous figures with regard to US-exceptionalist rhetoric: they may tap their subversive potential, while they are also bound to and complicit with the ideologies they seek to expose. In the context of the so-called New American Studies and the emergent field of Mobility Studies, this volume investigates these figures in a variety of cultural productions (pamphlets, song lyrics, autobiographies, novels, memorials, legal texts, video, television, and film) from the 17th century to the present.
