Blazing guns on the cattle range put a man--and a friendship--to the test. Trails end. Mingis Munro is a sergeant in the U.S. Cavalry seasoned the hard way in Indian wars and saloon shoot-outs. But eventually it comes time to tether his mount and hang up his guns. At the Wyoming end of the Goodnight Trail, a new and lush frontier for cattle raising, Munro starts his herd and makes his fortune. But once again he finds himself getting in somebody's way. A pack of poachers has some different notions about who owns the land and what grazes on it. To defend his spread, Munro calls his fighting talents out of retirement--and puts an old blood loyalty to the ultimate test. From inside Front Cover: "He's a lobo. A bad one, with a rep he's proud of. You don't give a gent like him the chance to start up with you. You got to draw on such a gent afore he issues you the invite. So slide out of my line of fire, sort of casual. I already got my gun out. But you're in my way." Munro insisted, "You can't. You're talking crazy. They'd hang you for sure for gunning a man with no reason at all, you idget." The stranger across the saloon called out, "You two, at that table, are you talking about me?" Munro turned in his chair with a polite smile to reply, "As a matter of fact, we was." Author Lou Cameron is a winner of the Spur Award.
