Hondo Lane was a man who'd come to terms with the hard land in which he lived.

She was a fighter with as much grit and determination as any man.

"I'm just passing' through," the rider said when they asked him his name.

And he wouldn't keep to himself. Because something about a parched and dusty ranch appealed to him, and something about a woman's hair made him think of not being alone, and something about a scheme to grab the land away from its rightful owner made him want to stay and fight. And so he stayed and fought. Because liars, killers, and cheaters were coming after Passing' Through with murder in their eyes, and a gun had a way of making him feel at home
