Over a rugged pass that shut off Shadrock, Wyoming, from the rest of the world came Brad Hunter driving his Tall T trail herd, explaining to those curious enough to ask that he was pushing his herd to Ellsworth, Kansas, by way of Wyoming. The Texans who followed him up the trail waited impatiently for him to take up the feud that had hung over him like a dark cloud. He didn't seem to be in a hurry, and waited patiently until others moved. But then a series of events changed everything. Newt Norton took to the warpath; Ed Martin went into full flight; and the Sloping S ranch disintegrated. Only then did Brad take the lead. But what he learned was that the hate in his heart was never his own--and the trail of his life led back to Texas

Suddenly, Kane finds himself defending young Tommy McGee, a neer-do-well and sometimes-rustler, against the fury of the Conroy brothers and their foreman Slade. Without giving it much thought at all, he's jettisoned himself at the center of a bloody feud

There were hard times in Texas in 1875. It seemed to the ranchmen that the whole world had stopped eating Texas beef - and to add to their troubles, a gang of rustlers was killing cattle at night and skinning them on the spot, taking away the only part that would bring cash on the market. To the ranchers' aid comes broad-shouldered Ben Anthony, with his slow, lazy smile. His lovely girl, Bess, has gotten herself engaged to dubious Harry Odell, who is suspected of collaborating with the rustlers - and what can drawling Ben do against a slick line of talk? Act, of course, and he does! Before things are finally straightened out, there is plenty of trouble, fights and killings, with good men pitted against bad
