A gunslinger goes up against his kin in this western in the USA Today bestselling Ralph Compton series.
 
Nathan Stone is a living legend in the West as a lawman, an outlaw, a gambler, and a wanderer through the wildest towns and terrain. He has blazed a vengeance trail, giving no quarter and asking for none. Fearlessly, he plays his cards and uses his Colt .45s as best he can in games of chance, skill, and savagery, for stakes of life or death.

Now he is riding on a course that will test his rawhide nerves and lightning draw against the likes of Doc Holliday, Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, the fleeing James brothers, and the incredible John Wesley Hardin—as he heads toward a fateful rendezvous with the one gunfighter as fast and deadly as he: the teenage kid who kills like a man and is Nathan Stone’s son...
