Whistlin’ Kid. Pete Prentice (sometimes “Prentiss”) is the “ace range detective” for the Cattleman’s Association. He is called the “Whistlin’ Kid” because he continuously whistles, especially when he is working on a problem. His favorite air is “The Cowboy’s Lament.” In his lone appearance he finds adventure in Goat City, which is run by a “crooked gambler and leader of ore and cattle thieves.”
