Abstract:

"Robert Fernald didn't look dangerous. Small and soft spoken, anyone would take him for a harmless kid. It was generally too late for his enemies when they found out about his deadly accuracy with a gun, or that his heroes were the legendary desperados of the past, that he regarded their feats as models to be copied. His first confrontation came when he trustfully accepted Pedrillo Oñate's lie that gunmen had robbed him of his blackjack winnings. Fernald, enraged, entered the saloon and held up three fighting men at the point of his gun, forcing them to return the money. Then Fernald, at the suggestion of Oñate, went after Tom Gill and his gunslingers who were preying on the Larkin ranch, forcing handsome young Beatrice Larkin into bankruptcy. Everyone said that it would take an army to stop the rustlers from driving the stolen cattle through the mountain passes--until Fernald faced tough Tom Gill himself in a showdown. Here, set in the wild country and in the lawless town of the Old West, is the story of a great fighting man."--Dust jacket.
