The Texan was not looking for trouble as he rode north up the Chisholm Trail. He had a price on his head and bounty hunters after him. But when he detoured into Chickasaw country to visit a young Indian friend, trouble found him. Lucy Luffy, pert and pretty bluestocking, was trying to stop a railroad wrecking her archaeological site. Railroad boss James Casper intended getting to the Red River at any cost. Framed, imprisoned, threatened by Judge Lynch and Casper's fast guns, Lucy hires the Texan to fight back. But his $1,000 fee is not all she may have to pay him...
