John Bronson used to be a gunfighter. Used to be until he became a prospector. Living in the wilderness searching for gold, he had time to think and exorcise the demons of his past. With a good strike, he headed off to his sister's ranch to stake a claim as a rancher with his sister, her husband, and son. Someone had another idea. One that did not include Bronson or his family. There was a group that wanted land and they didn't care how they got it or what they had to do to take it. Bronson arrives at his sister's ranch to find his sister and her husband had been hung, and his nephew kidnapped for ransom.The murders thought they were dealing with a bumpkin prospector in the kidnap deal. That was until Bonson's past came blasting through. His last gunfight. Or so he thought.
