KIRKUS REVIEW

A story of a manhunt in an isolated community in the far west, to which the mountain country lends a sombre isolation and violence. For Jeff Clark, who returns there after 12 years with a city wife and young family, encounters trouble with the Huddlestones, a wild and willful lot and a law unto themselves. Steering clear of Carrie Huddlestone, whom he had once loved and left, he finds that Al Brown, her husband, refuses to respect his water rights, and after a scuffle with Brown and the youngest Huddlestone, Jeff is accused of the boy's murder. Escaping into the woods, Clark is hunted by his enemies, hidden by Carrie whom he rebuffs, and only after Carrie is killed by another brother- does he find the answer to the young Huddlestone's death... A rough limned story of bad blood and vengeance, panic and pursuit, for a masculine market.
