For decades, Walt Coburn has been celebrated for his vivid descriptions of life in the Old West as it really was. The two stunning novellas in this volume showcase some of his finest work. In "Broken Wings," Capt. Stuart MacLane is kidnapped and forced into a plot to steal a million dollars in gold. The bounty will be plentiful…if the kidnappers let him live to take his share of the profits. The title story tells of an orphan named Bart, who is thrust into a new life when he helps a wanted man escape the sheriff's noose. But once on the outlaw trail himself Bart learns it's not so easy to tell friends from enemies- one wrong choice could be deadly.
