Sage Hampton rode into Eden Valley with a faint premonition of trouble ahead; before he reached the hub of the valley, the little cow town of Stirrup, the premonition had given way to a chilling certainty. For he learned that his brother Ross, owner of the Flying H ranch had been killed two days before. It had been at Ross's behest that Sage had come either to help with Ross's fantastic irrigation project or to talk him out of it.
