KIRKUS REVIEW

After a correspondence courtship, Rebecca Morris comes to God's country-Comanche country- to marry her (dead) brother's friend, Zed Jamison. To the loneliness and constraint of the first days, is added the fear of the Indians, who kill the family of another friend, Art Rathbone. In the wake of further violence to follow, Zed must defend himself, avenge Rathbone's death, and conceal the identity of a renegade white man and a conscienceless killer.... A spirited handling of a by no means patterned story.
