Folks said that Waxahachie Smith was finished when his enemies cut off both his trigger-fingers. But he came from a breed that did not accept defeat.
So he rode the range, ready to sell his fighting skills to the highest bidder. Nor was he ever out of employment when it was found he could still handle a gun with deadly speed.
A telegram warned of trouble in Widow's Creek. A special badge would make Waxahachie Smith marshal of this wild and woolly range town, but it also made him the target of a stone-cold killer. Ex-Texas Ranger Smith had lost both his trigger fingers years back, and some folks said he was washed up as a gunfighter. Now Smith's manhood and his life were on the line...a specially made slip gun was in his holster...and the town's safety was in his hands.
