"At the turn of the century, the open country of Oklahoma was changing. Cowpunchers depended on those wild places for their herds, but then land started disappearing, parceled up by land-grabbing homesteaders. The cowmen couldn't live with fences, They needed space and plenty of it. But in September of 1893, there would be a land rush the likes of which no one had ever seen. The last of the open range would be settled and fenced, unless Trago, a man of the West, and his men could turn back history with their guns"--Page 2 of cover

Outcasts of Rebel Creek : a Western quartet by Frank Bonham( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here for the first time in book form is a new quartet of Frank Bonham's finest Western stories. Bill Devlin of 'Butcherknife Ridge' is a man fighting to earn respect for himself while trying to clear the name of his grandfather. 'Border Man' is remarkable for the ease and skill with which Bonham combines a number of disparate elements and characters into a colorful, suspenseful narrative set in the Arizona-Mexico border country. Fast and furious action is the keynote in 'Outcasts of Rebel Creek' set in the high-desert country of eastern California which culminates in a pitched gun battle. Bandits, hostile Indians, Southern sympathizers, and other hardships beset freighter Jess Clyman on his journey to Mexico City and make for a tense, colorful narrative in 'Dusty Wheels--Bloody Trail.'" --
