Camping overnight in a draw on the newly released lands of the old XIT Ranch, Will Gantry suddenly feels an odd and welcome sense of belonging. He becomes friends with Dan, a deputy sheriff, a beautiful woman, and a young boy. He begins to make solid plans for the future that include an old cowboy named Pete and the professor. Will decides his idea of wandering down to Old Mexico can wait, maybe forever.
Dan Ricker didn’t ask to be a lawman. But he owed his life to Marshall Burke - and when Burke died whilst taking killer Jack Gorman to jail, Ricker knew he had to take over the job. The trail led through dangerous Comanche territory, where Ricker picked up the added burden of a girl whose father had been murdered by the Indians. Even worse, they had to pass close to the Gorman ranch, where Jack’s vicious, vengeance-hungry kin waited in ambush.
When heat and drought take their toll on owner of the Double R, Walt Rand, he decides to take action, against the advice of the local sheriff.
