If he has a last name, no one knows it, and he doesn't give it. He is known simply as Chip, and he is only fifteen when he wanders onto a Nevada range and gets himself hired to operate a hay press. But Chip won't stay there long. Life--and the sheriff--have other plans for him. Chip has a dangerous trail ahead of him, from a confrontation with a lynch mob, to a trip south of the border to rescue a beautiful woman, to a trek across the Nevada desert with the law in pursuit. Max Brand wrote three short novels about Chip, and they all appear here for the first time in paperback, just as Brand wrote them.
