(From the publisher):
Cattle drive in a deadly country...
Poor, orphaned at thirteen, Otis Chancy left the Tennessee mountains with nothing but a will to work, a drive to succeed, and the backbone for a fight. So when a fight comes his way, along with a chance to buy a herd of cattle and start his own spread, nineteen-year-old Chancy doesn't hesitate. He guns down a man who'd been using a sheriff's badge to justify cattle thieving.
But when a mysterious woman betrays him, he will find himself stalked by a deadly gunman. Despite his youth, Chancy won't run - and when his past catches up to him in Cheyenne, he'll make his stand, whether his partner and cowhands back his play... or whether he fights alone.
