The story: When two hard-case characters rode in from the Badlands, Blue Pete smelt trouble a mile off. Nor was his instinct at fault. Outbreaks of rustling quickly followed the arrival of these men and suspicion turned to certainty when they made for the hills driving Blue Pete's own steers before them. Although a man of peaceful pursuits, Pete reckoned there were some things no man could do to him and get away with, and stealing his cattle was one of them. His half-breed blood afire, he followed in pursuit and plunged blindly into the trap which had been set for him. Quickly he realized that this was not just a rustler's ruse but an ingenious trap laid by an old enemy intent on levelling the score between them. Usually, in such circumstances, a man's only chance is to come out shooting, but this time it didn't work out quite like that. Truth says: "Blue Pete is the most popular of cowboy characters in fiction. . . . Mr. Allan has the technique of the Wild West at his finger-tips."
