Rance Cash’s life calling is to leech off the guileless. But this time around, he believes he’s won $10,000 fair and square—and he’s taken it upon himself to chase down whoever swiped it. His horse will take him across Texas to New Mexico. And his adventures will take him from impersonating a lawyer to helping a snake-oil salesman.
But Rance isn’t entirely blameless. He still owes the Barneses, a down-on-their-luck farming family, quite a sum. The only way son Jody Barnes can think to save their remaining cattle from a mysterious, fatal disease is to round ’em all up and hightail it north. And if, on the way, he should encounter a familiar gambler, this greenhorn is more than ready to take him on.
