The medico could not foresee, when he took in Shan Jungward, a nestor’s ill daughter, that he was setting the spark to a bloody range war between the homesteaders on the one hand and the allied forces of cowmen and sheepherders on the other; a war that would force him to go on the prod again.
Homes were burned and cattle slaughtered; and the doctor was actually kidnapped by a woman, then subsequently held captive and then finally almost hung before he was able to help reconcile warring factions, stop the murder of innocent women and children and bring peace back to Painted Springs.
This book is also referred to as, “The Medico Rides the Trail” and was the basis for the movie, “Prairie Stranger”. The third movie in Columbia’s Medico Series based on the character Dr. Cliff Monroe created by James L. Rubel.
