Lynn Moorer discussed with Michael S. Potts his book of short stories, Highgrove, each of which has a western theme and is set in the 1800s. Four of the stories feature Sheriff Pecos McCloud of Highgrove, Arizona and its environs. His common-sense detective skills, knowledge of everyone in his community, and likeability give him unmatched respect and cooperation by the local folks when he tracks down leads and solves crimes. Several stories revolve around prospectors who carry bags of gold ore or dust with them, which are irreplaceable when stolen and which can get men killed.
