Inside Front cover
This is a fast-moving, slam-bang western yarn based on the actual records of the notorious Black Jack Ketchum gang which used to harry and rob the trains of the Rock Island Railroad. It takes place in the days when guns were for hire by any man who could pay the price, and when the boldness of the outlaws gave men an excuse to take the law into their own hands. It has the tight plot and the hard and flashing style that Nelson C. Nye knows so well how to handle.
A Lonely Rider
It was dusk when Dane rode into the Pass. In the saddle nearly all day, he'd had no sleep and he was bone-weary. So weary that, with eyes half-closed, he was unable to recognize danger.
He was that way when a rifle roared down the gulch. When its echoes struck the sandstone walls he was toppling from the saddle. He hit sprawled out like a busted sack; stayed where he dropped, limp, motionless.
Mr. Nye's work is well above the average in the field of westerns - Houston Press.
