This eBook edition of "A Man to His Mate (Action Thriller)" has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. Excerpt: "There was a fortune in sight. For gold, men forget the obligations of life and law in civilization; they revert to savage type, and their minds and actions are swayed by the primitive urge of lust. Treachery, selfishness, cruelty and crime breed from the shining particles even before they are in actual sight and touch. Rainey knew that. He had read many true yarns that had come down from the frozen North, in from the deserts and the mountains, tales of the mining records of the West." J. Allan Dunn (1872-1941) was one of the high-producing writers of the American pulp fiction. He first made a name for himself in pulp magazine Adventure. He was a specialist in South Sea stories, and pirate tales. His main genres were adventure and western, but he also wrote a number of detective stories.
