KIRKUS REVIEW

Shelby Scott, fighter with Jeb Stuart, outlaw with the James and Younger brothers, border scum in Mexico, buries his identity with his friend- Sam Bass, and starts a new life as Sam Austin with Bass' youngster. He throws in with some settlers in Texas, serves as their schoolmaster and their leader, and, tried of living by the gun, dies in his attempt to maintain a more peaceable existence.... Shades of Shane, and a superior story with a sharp definition and a distinctive handling.
