Two Western novellas by the incomparable Lauran Paine, a titan of the Western genre.

"Tomahawk Meadow" tells the story of Ladd Buckner, a stranger who arrives in a small town in Arizona Territory. Buckner buys the local saddle and harness shop, but when the townspeople recognize his stitch work, the town marshal decides to investigate. Before he can reveal his findings, however, the marshal is killed during the course of a daring bank robbery. A letter is found in his pocket that states Ladd Buckner had been released from prison after serving a term for bank robbery. To keep his good name, Buckner will have to track down the men who robbed the town and killed the sheriff, in this thrilling story about honor, loyalty, and running from one's past.

In "Promise of Revenge," Tom Barker returns to the small cow town of Beatty, where, fifteen years before, his mother had abandoned him and had run off with another man. Tom's father, a freighter, abused the boy while authorities looked the other way. Now he is grown, has acquired a good deal of wealth, and is back in Beatty, intent on evening the score with the town that rejected him. Although handy with a six-gun, he'll have to uses his wits and his wealth to outsmart the rich locals who never thought Tom Barker would return . . .
