Summary

A master storyteller in the great tradition of Zane Grey and Louis L’Amour

MAN IN THE SADDLE—He fought his way back from hell—alone!

The combine drove Owen Merritt from his land, branding him a coward and a killer while forcing him into hiding. But they had made one drastic, fatal mistake: they had forgotten to kill him!

HIGH TRAILS AND FAST HORSES

It was the gray first-dawn, and Owen Merritt was off the trail, halted on the edge of timber. Ahead of him stood the cabin where the Skull outfit’s chuck-wagon crew still slept. He dropped from the saddle and drew his rifle from its boot.

There would be five or six men in the cabin and in another fifteen minutes they would be stirring. Merritt steadied his rifle against the side of a small pine, knowing what he had to do. When he pulled the trigger of the Winchester he said goodbye to the flat country. It would be high trails and fast horses, beans and bacon over a quick campfire, and fade away.

He took aim on the high corner of the cabin window and let go.

BOUGH COUNTRY-BLOODTHIRSTY MEN

The combine was too big for Owen Merritt—too powerful and too ruthless. They drove him off his land. They branded him coward and killer. Then they shamed him before the only woman he ever wanted. So he went into hiding. The only thing was that he couldn’t get rid of the disgrace that lodged in his gut. Or the hunger for the vast cattle lands he had lost. With no choice Owen Merritt went back, because those scum had made one drastic mistake: they forgot to kill him!
