"Boss McGill was tired of fighting off the nester flood. Hungry homesteaders were crowding into his Texas range every day, and the land that had once stretched wide and free was being fenced in. McGill looked for new ranges for his herds, and it seemed that Montana was the place. It was just before that long and hazardous drive north that Powder Burns decided to tag along. Not the least of his reasons was McGill's pretty daughter, Mary Ellen, even though the formidable Boake Queen had similar ideas. Boake was bent on winning the girl even if he had to bring her dad to ruin to do it. And to help his plans along, Boake postponed a necktie party on the outlaw No-Brand Burley so that the rustler and his hardcase [sic] crew could do some brand-blotting of the Broadaxe herd. But Powder had more than rustlers and the elements to contend with. For in the hate that Broadaxe foreman Laredo Scott bore him there lay a perpetual danger -- one that could only end in gunsmoke [sic]. And as if this weren't enough, near the end of the trail there lurked the mystery of Buzzard's Border and a secret no man had ever returned to reveal -- a secret gaurded by three ominous stone buzzards and a pack of doomed, kill-crazy men"--Dust cover flap
