An explosive tale of unavoidable destiny from a master of western fiction.
Brothers and Texas ranch owners Johnny and Ted Cotton are fresh from the Civil War. The carnage changed them both forever. Johnny developed a mean streak, while Ted refuses to pack or fire any gun, at any time.
When savage Commanches attack their ranch, it is Ted's refusal to fight that costs the life of his closest friend and carves a rift between Johnny and himself that will never be healed.
Soon, Johnny is killed on a trail drive by vicious marauders. If Ted had been there, his brother would be alive. Now it's up to Ted to seek revenge, or sit back and watch more blood spill.
