The Mustang Men

This is a nice, solid western by the always-dependable Ben Haas, under one of his pseudonyms. (Well, I've always found him dependable -- I don't think I've read any of his books yet that I've not enjoyed.)

The Mustang Men is an entry in Haas' Rancho Bravo series. It's the first of them I've read, and it was quite good.

My main point in the post is to share the cover. I think it's very evocative for a western cover painting. The impressionistic style reminds me greatly of Jeff Jones' work, but I don't find a tell-tale signature. Nor did I think he worked in the western genre, but I may be wrong.

Anyone know who did this cover painting?
