Calvin King’s barren, but strategically located, mountain spread was coveted by both sheepmen and cowmen in a bitter struggle dividing the Pothook country. King, at risk of his life, refused to sell and was determined to straddle the fence in the range war.

But after finding two sheepmen hung, and then the body of Jim Preston, cowmen leader, killed by bushwhackers, Calvin realized that fate had dealt him a hand, whether he wanted it or not, and that it was up to him to play his cards.

By doing so, he unmasked the real culprit responsible for the burning, looting and shooting laying waste to the countryside. It was time to deal him a deadly cowboy vengeance.
