KIRKUS REVIEW

Not a formula Western, and much better than average -- an unusual story. A middle-weight finds his career threatened when his heart goes back on him. He trains himself to complete nerve control -- he takes up poker as a living -- he gets trapped into an escapade from which his victim's daughter rescues him, and helps him escape west, where he builds new life for himself, and makes himself a leading citizen. He stays honest and eventually finds himself well again and able to settle down with the girl he loves.
