World Chase Me Down by Andrew Hilleman
This novel, based on a true story of the life of Patrick Crowe, is a first rate western. The setting is Omaha, Nebraska in the early 1900's. Crowe's life was anything but easy growing up. As an adult his life was even harder, but he never forgot where he came from and was always ready to help the downtrodden when he could. Credited with getting away with collecting a ransom for kidnapping the son of a meatpacking tycoon and then returning the son unharmed, his story was the talk of the nation back in the day. I recommend this book.
