"Someone was out to get Pace Larrabee! Someone had crippled him in an ambush, killed one of his men, and rustled a herd of horses...someone had stampeded his cattle and threatened to poison his water holes. Pace had carved a thriving ranch in the wild, untamed wilderness of Oregon. He'd been helped by Arliss, the woman who staked him to a strange, passionless partnership, but he had to be wary of Gilgen, the man with a dark past and a strange hold over Arliss. And, he had other enemies. Was his foe among the nesters who poached on the land back in the hills? Even their fiery women had their reasons for hating him. One from among the enemy legion was about to step forth, one with an obsession and a deadly aim - to kill Pace Larrabee!" --
