In this Ralph Compton western, a feud between friends turns deadly...

For over a generation, the Circle T ranch and the D/P ranch have existed in harmony on the prime grazing land of the Sweet Grass Valley. Separated by the Rio Largo river, both ranches have managed to prosper—mostly due to the ranch owners Kent Tovey and Dar Pierce. For years, they’ve grown their herds and their wealth, as well as their friendship.

But one loyal cowboy caught in the carnage knows the truth. And when the Circle T and the D/P can no longer be protected, they must be avenged…
