The year was 1862. The end of the Civil War was still fresh in most people's thoughts. On a chilly spring morning, Dan Walker was standing on the large, wooden front porch of his Montana home, enjoying a hot cup of coffee and drinking in the beautiful scenery of his vast empire, as he did every morning after breakfast. 'Dan, ' his wife said. 'This young man wants to see the ramrod of this outfit. He says he needs a job real bad.' When an eight-year-old boy with no name wanders onto the Walkers' ranch, Dan and Martha Walker could never have guessed what life had in store for the boy. Taken in by the Walkers as part of the family and given the name Jack Montana by the other ranch hands, the young boy soon grows into a man. After emerging victorious from a gunfight with a notorious gunfighter and being framed for bank robbery, Jack finds himself embroiled in a quest to capture five vicious outlaws. Along the way, Jack meets an eclectic cast of characters who all play an important role in his life's direction. Author Chuck Morris weaves an epic tale of love and lust, of anger and jealousy, of responsibility and honor. Readers will surely lose themselves in the saga of Jack Montana
