Have Gun, Will Battle
Chet Byrnes has built a ranching empire from the ground up. And he s defended it with his sweat, blood and a ragtag band of ranch-hand fighters. Now a beautiful young Spanish widow comes into Chet s life, just as he starts off in search of a lost cattle drive. The search leads into the eye of a sprawling, violent storm.
Chet, and his men and his seductive new woman end up on a wild ride through Nebraska, Colorado and Kansas, where authorities want to confiscate the beeves for trespassing. With Indians, outlaws and an oppressive government crossing their path, Chet is on a cowboy s honeymoon: fighting and shooting all the way back home.
