Summary
  • Shotgun: Rancher Blair Bishop of Two Forks, Texas, has too many enemies, and they're closing in. Macy Modock, whom Bishop sent to prison ten years ago, returns to Two Forks looking for vengeance. Cowman Clarence Cass conspires with Modock to ruin his rival even though Cass's daughter and Bishop's son are in love. The black-hearted duo lay claim to untitled lands where Bishop grazes his cattle--a plan that leads to a deadly confrontation in which two men will die
  • Six bits a day: To keep his conservative brother from getting married and starting life as a farmer, Hewey Calloway convinces Walter to join him on a mission for Boss Tarpley, driving 600 head of cattle from beyond San Antonio to the Double-C ranch on the Pecos. The journey is both memorable and dangerous: a murderous outlaw is searching for Hewey; and another ruthless character is determined to sabotage the cattle drive. When the drivers reach the Pecos they find Tarpley in the midst of a vicious range feud with Eli Jessup, a neighboring cowman. Hewey and his brother Walter have to get the herd safely across Jessup's land--but how?
