Ruggles of Red Gap

by Harry Leon Wilson

When Ruggles, a distinguished English valet, is unexpectedly thrust into the heartland of America's Red Gap, a quirky and boisterous town on the frontier, he never could have anticipated the uproarious adventure that awaited him. In a strange twist of fate, Ruggles becomes the property of the rough-and-tumble Floud family, led by the irrepressible Egbert Floud. As Ruggles navigates this eccentric new world with its peculiar customs and unconventional characters, he finds himself grappling with the clash between his proper English upbringing and the unruly spirit of the American West. From wrestling matches and poker games to cowboys and bootleggers, Ruggles becomes entangled in a series of outrageous escapades that both challenge and transform him. With a keen eye for satirical humor and a heartwarming touch, Harry Leon Wilson weaves a delightful tale of culture clash and self-discovery. Through his encounters with the Floud family, Ruggles discovers that true wealth lies not in material possessions, but in the richness of human connection and the pursuit of personal freedom. "Ruggles of Red Gap" is a timeless comedic masterpiece that explores the absurdities of class distinctions and celebrates the triumph of individual spirit. Join Ruggles on his rollicking journey through the wild and untamed town of Red Gap, where unexpected friendships and unexpected courage await at every turn.
