KIRKUS REVIEW

Shotguns rather than pistols as the righting of a moral malfeasance, an unwed mother, stirs up action in this valley where Lee Stobie, a wild one, ducks out on the girl who bears his child, on another girl to whom he was engaged, and brings home a third one as his wife. Owen Daybright, out of loyalty to Lee's father, covers for his mistakes until when faced with Lee's plan to rob his father and to plant the paternity of the child on him, Owen is forced to take stronger, shooting measures. An old hand, and certainly a new theme, this has the ease which comes with experience.
