The Coming of Hopalong Cassidy tells the story of when Bill "Hopalong" Cassidy became a man in the west to be reckoned with. At the beginning of the book, Hopalong is probably younger than 21 years, but is equipped with a man's body. He first travels alone, a youth undeterred by the perils of the West, before singing up for what became long-term employment with the Bar-20 Ranch. The book was first published around 1908, long before the world came to know "Hoppy" on TV in the 1950s, or in comic books around the same time.
