In the middle of a harsh desert where water is the town's most valuable resource, an accused killer runs to escape the man who is trying to kill him. Troy Warfield is on the run. He is entering hostile New Mexico territory, where the heat sucks moisture from the earth and beats down the weak. Accused of killing a deputy U. S. Marshal, Warfield has been running for six hundred miles, evading the relentless pursuit of U. S. Marshal John Trent. Fulton, New Mexico, is the only source of water at the end of a desert. Anyone wanting to reach Mexico would need to ride through Fulton, a town that is run by Lem Bricker and his gang, who charge mightily for its water at two dollars a gallon. When Troy Warfield is waylaid on the way to Fulton, Marshal Trent gets there ahead of him and is captured by Bricker and his thugs. All they want from Trent is information: who he's pursuing, his description, and how much money he's carrying. Soon, it begins to look as if the outlaws will assist Marshal Trent to do whatever it takes to capture Warfield. There's just one little problem: Troy Warfield isn't carrying any money.

The collected stories of EAA "Sport Aviation" columnist Lauran Paine Jr. This is aviation from the heart.
Two Western novellas by the incomparable Lauran Paine, a titan of the Western genre. "Tomahawk Meadow" tells the story of Ladd Buckner, a stranger who arrives in a small town in Arizona Territory. Buckner buys the local saddle and harness shop, but when the townspeople recognize his stitch work, the town marshal decides to investigate. Before he can reveal his findings, however, the marshal is killed during the course of a daring bank robbery. A letter is found in his pocket that states Ladd Buckner had been released from prison after serving a term for bank robbery. To keep his good name, Buckner will have to track down the men who robbed the town and killed the sheriff, in this thrilling story about honor, loyalty, and running from one's past. In "Promise of Revenge," Tom Barker returns to the small cow town of Beatty, where, fifteen years before, his mother had abandoned him and had run off with another man. Tom's father, a freighter, abused the boy while authorities looked the other way. Now he is grown, has acquired a good deal of wealth, and is back in Beatty, intent on evening the score with the town that rejected him. Although handy with a six-gun, he'll have to uses his wits and his wealth to outsmart the rich locals who never thought Tom Barker would return . . .

LAW IN A LAWLESS LAND
It's often been said that the only law in the West was a gun, and that outlaws rode unchecked over anyone unlucky enough to stand in their way. But as these two classic short novels by Lauran Paine show, there were courageous men willing to risk their lives to tame the Wild West. "Lawman" is the story of Boyd Dylan, the newly appointed deputy sheriff of Santa Maria, who runs into trouble when his boss, Sheriff Rensberg, doesn't want him to disturb the status quo. In "The Dark Trail," Will Brennan is a deputy sheriff and bounty hunter ordered to bring in the Verde River Kid for bank robbery--but the man he arrests isn't exactly a stranger. When lawmen and outlaws clash there's sure to be excitement, and no one could capture it on paper better than Lauran Paine
A VISION OF DOOM
Sam Sloan, an old buffalo hunter, did not know it when he set out on his quest for a spirit vision and a final resting place, but something was drawing him toward a fateful meeting--a meeting with his destiny. Many-Horses, an ancient Navajo, was near starvation when he encountered Sloan in a secluded mountain spot. The old Lakota woman, White Magpie, came next, accompanied by young Yellow Bluebell. Both of them had escaped from Crow Indian captivity. United in their search for survival, they formed a magic circle. Disaster, though, was looming near. A white bird foretold it in a dream...just before Sloan discovered gold in a nearby creek.
In the title story of this trio, Feud on the Mesa concerns two saddle mates, Rufe Miller and Jud Hudson, who committed an ill-advised stagecoach robbery. They stumble onto Cain Mesa, location of a ranch owned by Elisabeth Cane. Arlen Chase, an enterprising cowman, is trying to force Elisabeth to leave. When Rufe's horse is shot by one of Chase's men, the two propose going to work for Elisabeth to help her in her conflict with Chase. In Renegades Beat the War Drum, the frontiersman Caleb Dorn, known among the Indians as Silent Outcast, tries to negotiate with Red Sleeves and his band of Apaches who have surrounded the town of Denton and cut off all access. In Texas Herds Bring Death, Caleb has moved north into cattle country where a Texas herd is not permitted by the Crow nation to have access to the trail through their land.
Seward City was in roughshod, chaotic Dakota Territory. The day he arrived by stage, Jud Parker looked impressive, physically a big man, dressed in the best clothing with a tall silk hat. Despite appearances, however, in his pocket he had less than $100. Renting a dingy room for $10 a week seemed like a fortune to Jud. Yet there was a restlessness here that Jud had noticed imbued the entire countryside. Everyone had something to do, some place to go, some means of making money. Banker Heber Caldwell had accumulated the most money and lived in a house that had cost $100,000. Jud knew that nothing compared to the mansions he had seen back East, but the Caldwell home was what he wanted for himself, and using his ingenuity and his physical prowess he intended to have it.
Everyone in Holbrook had liked Hal Simpson, so when his dead body was found inside an ambushed stagecoach, tempers rose to lynching heights. Yet when the killer's body hung from a tall cottonwood and it should all have been over, the real trouble had only begun.
Leaving the freezing winters of Montana, Cliff Lockwood heads off to New Mexico. En route he meets Shelley Harrison, but rides on, even though he is attracted to her. Years later he sets off in search of her, haunted by a sorrowful memory.

Local ranchers are staking claims to grazing areas and building up extensive cattle empires. Boss has no quarrel with that, but he won't be intimidated or scared off. So when local rancher Denton Baxter kills one of Boss's crew and wounds another, Boss knows he must make a stand.
