Justice casts a long shadow in this Ralph Compton western.

James Cason…son of the owner of the Long Shadow ranch and head of a posse that tracked Mexican bandits across the border and killed their leader.
Duke Faglier…wanted by both sides of the law for killing the men who murdered his family.
Revelation Scattergood…suspected of being a rustler alongside her four brothers—and ready to start a new life for herself.
Together they will drive a herd of cattle from San Antonio, Texas, to the Dakota Territory for one large payoff. But as they head off on the trail that leads through Sioux country, the Civil War rages, gold fever strikes, deadly enemies lurk—and they’re not sure if they can trust one another.
