Max Brand’s second western tells the story of Anthony Bard, a restless young aristocrat from
the east with a hunger for adventure whose father was murdered in the yard of their home.
Bard’s desire for vengeance leads him to the far west, where he intends to track down his father’s
killer. There he is considered a tenderfoot but proves himself more than equal to anyone on
a horse or with a gun — and he finds his man waiting for him, not with a gun, but with a story.
