Raymond, Rickey. Rickey Raymond was created by Kennett Harris and appeared in four stories in The Saturday Evening Post in 1911 and 1912, beginning with “Rickey Takes a Walk” (Saturday Evening Post, Oct 7, 1911).

Rickey Raymond is a tall, lean, laid-back lounger on the western frontier, in the town of Sentinel Butte. Raymond doesn’t particularly enjoy ranch work, and would prefer to earn his money hiring himself out for a short while as a guide to Eastern greenhorns, and then spend the proceeds gambling. Unfortunately, this usually leads him to poverty and debt. Fortunately, Raymond is, beneath his drawl and spendthrift ways, a capable horseman and cowboy, and a hard worker when he wants to be, and he inevitably leads his wards out of trouble, often with a smoking .45.
