A novel by

 
 
Caleb Hughes aimed to hang McAllister. He had an old grudge to settle. Besides, men would then talk about him from Canada to the Mexican border.
McAllister was on the trail of a bunch of desperate horse-thieves. They had stolen his famous California horses. What's more, they had killed his neighbor back in Black Horse.
Lured over the territorial line into wild, outlaw country, McAllister finds himself surrounded by renegades who want his end for something that happened a thousand miles away in another place in another time.
But McAllister plans to reverse the situation - by turning himself into wolfbait!
