"Rufe Miller and Jud Hudson have a history of moving on, but they have to hit the trail a little faster than usual when their stagecoach robbery doesn't go according to plan. The former mustangers got only three gold pieces, but to the sheriff stealing is stealing, regardless of the take. Their flight brings Rufe and Jud to Elisabeth Cane's spread, just in time to get caught in a local showdown. A thieving cowman has his eye on Cane's ranch, and his gang has cut the lovely owner off from all outside help. But Rufe and Jud don't hold with that kind of behavior, and those cattle-rustling, barn-burning hardcases are in for the fight of their lives."-Book Jacket.
