Justin Albright was a power-drunk devil. He planned to stampede his huge Skull herd through Marcon Canyon into the rich grassland beyond just to see the handful of peaceable settlers there trampled into their land. His desperado gang would ride over dead men to do it.

Dan Matson knew the brutes coming after the settlers were a ruthless bunch, but as people began to die, he came to the realization that the man who led this vicious gang wasn't just a paid assassin. He was a monster who hurt people for the sheer joy if it. And Dan Matson and the brave valley ranchers weren't going to take the abuse lying down. That's when Albright's dry gulcher brought his hellish guns to Smith's Hole, and began to pick off settlers one by one . . .
