The war is over, but the fight has just begun in this western in Ralph Compton's USA Today bestselling series.

They came back from the war, and their land was gone. The Texas soil they’d nourished with years of backbreaking work had been snatched away. And in a moment of fury at this Yankee plunder, Mark Rogers and Bill Harder cut down a pair of tax collectors…and wound up behind bars in Fort Worth.
 
But then the former Confederate soldiers are offered a choice: they can face their sentences—or infiltrate a gang of whiskey runners who’ve been evading the law between St. Louis and Fort Smith. If they succeed, they’ll gain their freedom…and their confiscated land.
 
But when they meet up with Wolf Estrello and his fellow bandits, they just might wish they’d taken their chances with the firing squad…
