Arriving in the evening at the little cow-town of White Water, “Limberleg” Magill was surprised to find himself accepting the hospitality of the local jail – not for his sins, but for his protection. He had come down, innocently enough, to take over the Lazy Y ranch after the death of his uncle. He did not know that the very name of Magill stunk like a coyote from one end of the Dry Lake Valley to the other; he did not know that every man in Tuscola County was amazed at his nerve in turning up to claim the Lazy Y.

But Limberleg was not the brand that crumples – he thrived on trouble. Clear as a flash, he saw his work cut out. First, he must find the killer of his uncle. Second, he must wipe out his uncle’s rotten reputation and make the name of Magill worthy of the Lazy Y.

It’s a dynamic story of human endeavour and achievement, set in the most gorgeous scenery of the West.

Notes to the Book: Limberleg Magill is a character that Mr. Rubel had visions for as a main character in a series of novels as well as motion pictures. One letter to his literary agent, A.L. Fierst, indicates that intent. See The Limberleg Series for more information.
