'Trouble was brewing in the town of Longhorn, Utah. A band of nesters had moved onto land the local cattlemen had always previously claimed as their own. The nesters weren’t breaking any laws – by order of the government, they were entitled to claim and work the land. But what made things worse was that they also happened to be the one thing no cattleman could stand …. sheepmen!
'Judd Gunther, the biggest rancher in those parts, immediately declared war on the newcomers, and against so many hired guns, there wasn’t much they could do to defend themselves – until Shane Preston and Jonah Jones happened to pass through.
'Taking a shine to nester’s daughter Elizabeth Cooper, and an instant dislike to Gunther and his two bully-boys sons, Jake and Efraim, Shane and Jonah decided to buy into the war, in the hope of stopping it. But when the bullets started flying, they realized things were going to get a whole lot worse before they got better.'
