For sale—one Gunhawk!
Once a man could swing a wide loop and build up a herd from the mavericks that roamed the Texas brush. A lot of men became cattle kings in a hurry that way. But Reb Kittredge came along too late. Now he was supposed to be satisfied with forty a month and found.
Then Reb decided he'd play for bigger stakes. He'd sell his gun to the highest bidder. That's what brought him to Sleeping Cat Basin, where Gault Telford offered the biggest stake of all.
This quick-trigger job was just one step on the trail to building his own ranch—until a desperate woman bargained for his six-gun with her beauty.
