Pale Horse, Pale Rider contains three short novels, - "Old Mortality," a story of race tracks, of the Deep South, of the survival and shattering of a family legend; "Noon Wine," Texas and a dairy farm rescued from decay by a man who turns out to be an escaped lunatic from Dakota and of the tragedy that ended it all; "Pale Horse, Pale Rider,"a mystical story of the narrow ledge between life and death, set at the time of the flu epidemic.
