Boy Ranchers. The Boy Ranchers were created by the Willard F. Baker (Bob Dexter) and appeared in the nine-volume “Boy Ranchers” series, beginning with Boy Ranchers (1921) and ending with Boy Ranchers in Terror Canyon (1930).

The Boy Ranchers are Nort Shannon, Dick Shannon, and Bud Merkle, three Eastern boys who travel west, to the Diamond X Ranch, which the Shannons’ father owns. The trio have a series of adventures which take them far afield, pursuing cattle rustlers on the trail, fighting evil Yaquis among the Apache, fighting evil sheep herders, finding lost mines, fighting evil Chinese smugglers, solving a poisoning mystery, and exploring "Terror Canyon."
