Seventeen-year-old Gordon Connors always has had a peculiar aversion to guns. The sight, the sound, the feel of them make him sick to his stomach. But then his father is framed for cattle rustling and hanged by vigilantes. When his mother is fatally wounded in the attack, Gordon suddenly finds himself alone and on the run. Up in the mountains, it doesn't take long before he is lost and on the verge of starvation - the lynch mob, desperate to wipe out the whole family, hot on his trail. Gordon has no choice: he must learn to live by the gun or die by it.
