To Frank Beeler, a sodbuster who just hasn't made it, the chance to hire out as the guide to a hunting party of wealthy dudes seems a golden opportunity. He knows the Indian territories, speaks a few of their languages, and has had previous experience as a scout. Frank's not sure exactly what kind of game his employers are after but to him it doesn't matter much -- bear, deer, wolves, and mountain lions are plentiful in the country he knows like the back of his hand. But when Frank learns that these hunters are looking for human prey, he's shocked and outraged. Unfortunately, now that he knows what their plans are, he has only one choice: guide them or become their or prey?
The badge and Harry Cole by Clifton Adams( Book )

20 editions published between 1971 and 2010 in English and French and held by 875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a deputy marshal of the U.S. District Court for Western Arkansas in the 1880s, Harry Cole was well qualified for the tough and demanding work he did, and took a passionate pride in the knowledge that he was better at it than almost anybody else. In fact, there was nothing Cole valued so much as his job, and he let nothing interfere with it--not friendship or personal loyalties, or even his beautiful wife, Cordelia. There were times, though, when the burden of being a lawman weighed heavily on Harry Cole, and it became almost intolerable after he began his campaign to capture the Sutter gang, the most dangerous outlaws in the territory. Along the way he had left a trial of dead men and broken lives and now their memories returned to haunt him mockingly as he faced Cordelia's bitter rejection of everything he stood for
