As Mark Malloy bit the tip off his big cheroot and sauntered down the road, he didn't look much like the rough-and-tumble cowhands around town. With his tweed coat and carefully creased trousers, he didn't look like he belonged here -- and he was beginning to wonder if it was time to take his leave of Saunderstown. The gambler had lost three times in a row, and his stash was dwindling. But a chance to win it all back was too good to pass up. The game took a change for the better when a tipsy stranger arrived and sat at the table. In the process of losing everything, the stranger, in desperation, threw in a deed to a piece of rangeland that presumably had plenty of water. Malloy walked away with the money and the deed. What appeared to be a wonderful stroke of luck was the beginning of Malloy's worst nightmare

On one side, Clem faced Val Meeker and the tough and vengeful crew the elder Hardins had hired to terrorize the nesters. On the other side were those same nesters -- bitter, battle-weary, and anxious to cut down any man named Hardin! Death usually follows death -- and young Clem fought alone until the last savage showdown

Trouble rode the same weary road as cowboy Chick Bronson--a road that took him from one busted range to another. And finally, instead of the job he desperately needed, he found a jail cell at the end of the trail. From that time on, Bronson was the target of suspicions, threats, and merciless beatings at the hands of men who didn't even know him. It looked as if the trail was turning his way at last when he hired out to rancher Vince Kimbrough. But in the range war that suddenly ripped through the valley of Lost Wolf River, it was hard for him to know which side he should take. All he knew was that he had to take a stand somewhere--and that gallons of blood would be shed before the valley would ever know peace again!
