Wonder why this stayed in the barrel so long? It's good Zane Grey! A better than average story on the revolution to break the power of the rustlers on the newly opened Arizona ranges. The project originated with a reformed outlaw, Wade Nolden, and the story traces Wade's fame as gunman for a holdup man, who confesses as he dies, that Wade is his son, and wins from Wade a promise to go straight. Wade is saved from capture by the Rangers by Jacqueline Ponoarrow, and years later their paths cross again. As Tex Brandon, Wade uses his own money to hiro cowhands, buy new cattle, fend off the enemy rustlers, and write cattle history in blood. He wins Jacqueline-and his pardon.
