He came to Canadian Crossing one day from out of nowhere, a tall man with firmly molded features and a quiet dignity that rested easily on his lean, broad shoulders.
He was armed. It should have had no significance; most men wore a gun in this part of the country. But something about the way he wore his, the holster swung a trifle low and forward, suggested that he was more than a little experienced in its use.
Looking at the man who called himself Frank Kinniard, Jesse Buckmaster decided he had found his new cattle boss for the trip ahead. For Jesse had no illusions and he knew the stranger and his gun would have their uses
It would be friend against friend, and neighbor against neighbor, on the dangerous trail to Montana.
