"Bill Stillings looked hungrily at Martha Southard. He wanted her so much it hurt. But when he stared at the band of horseman galloping toward him he knew he was going to lose her and everything else that mattered. It was a posse with Beaudry, crooked sheriff of Bowie, in the lead. They were coming after him on a faked charge and they weren't interested in taking him alive. Black bitterness filled his heart. Should he stay and fight the posse? Or should he head for the Cherokee Strip, where even US marshals feared to ride, and hunt down the ambusher who killed his father? Stillings really had no choice. So he fled to the Strip even though it meant giving up Martha and brought him into conflict with Smoke Sontag's owlhooters!"; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall
