Even at seventeen years old, Carson Ryan knows enough about cow herding to realize the crew heas with is about the worst ever. Theyare taking the long way around to the Montana prairies, and theyare seriously undermanned. While rounding up strays, Ryan hears gunshots ring across the range. Suspecting an Indian attack, he gallops straight into a U.S. Army raid instead. The outfit heas with is nothing but a bunch of murdering cattle rustlers, and the law thinks heas one of them. Tied up, thrown in jail, and tried by a court thatas more interested in hanging a man than learning the truth, Carson has only two options: escape or die trying.aAnd we need these guns he speaks of, a Walking Fox commented. ... Cut Hand had an old trading post single-shot rifle, while Lame Foot had a double-barrel shotgun, with only a few shells, and Walking Fox had only a how. He would give one of them his Spencer carbine to use, but that still left them at a disadvantage in a gunfight with the white men. ... But this one had triggered something in his memory.
