A gunfighter rides into legend in this western in Ralph Compton's USA Today bestselling series.

It was the 1870s—Jesse and Frank James led daring raids on banks and trains. Doc Holliday’s name struck dread in the hearts of men, and Wild Bill Hickok played poker with bullets in the hole. A young killer named Billy the Kid was hunted by a determined lawman, and a General named Custer took the Seventh Cavalry into Dakota Territory.

One man rode this untamed frontier like a shadow of death. His name was Nathan Stone, and he had learned to kill on the vengeance trail. He would have stopped after settling the score with his parents’ savage slayers. But when you are the greatest gunslinger of all, there is no peace or resting place. And it was Nathan Stone’s destiny to fight for survival against the most famed and feared figures from Texas to the Black Hills on both sides of the law.
