The story is about two brothers, fraternal twins. They move to California from Oklahoma with their parents in 1871 in an exchange of properties with a friend in Oklahoma and settle in on a three-hundred-acre ranch. They are attacked by three escapees from Yuma state prison who murdered their parents. For the next fifteen years, they would attempt to hunt down these killers and seek revenge. The boys are not gunslingers, but they grow up to be tough on survival. However, they don’t spend their time chasing ghosts; they do many things. One of the boys works on the ranch of a man that takes them in, and the other works at the Emporium, also owned by the rancher. They go through many trials in their search.
