"Montana Territory, 1886"
""The last thing this territory needs is Indian trouble, or a
bunch of nervous settlers demanding protection by the Army. As
United States Marshal for the territory, I figure to send Jeff a
little help...I figure to send him you," he said."
U.S. Deputy Marshal Merlin Fanshaw arrives at the Crow Indian
Reservation with orders to restore law and order. But a powerful
rancher and his son block the deputy's efforts in order to retain
their rigid control over the nearby settlement of Medicine Lodge.
When a shocking murder rocks the town, tension and violence
escalates between the Crow Indians and the settlers. Fanshaw must
bring in the killer before an innocent man loses his life-or he
forfeits his own.
"A particularly rewarding novel written by one of the finest
Western novelists of our times. Stan Lynde's novels are laced with
wry humor, thoughts on the art of living and growing, toughness and
tenderness, and the keenest understanding of human nature I've ever
seen in fiction." -Richard S. Wheeler,
Winner of the 2001
Owen Wister Award
"Lynde's pleasant, genuine narration, tinged with both wit and
grit, carries the narrative; the authenticity, country humor, and
vibrant characters all make for a warmly entertaining read.
Satisfying western fare, in the vein of Louis L'Amour." "-Kirkus
