If a man won't fight for what is rightly his, then he ain't much account.
With this challenge from his dying father, young Shell Tucker rode out after three men who had stolen the 20,000 dollars his father was carrying. Two of the men he hunted, Doc Sites and Kid Reese, were his friends. Dreaming of adventure, Tucker had wanted to join their gang. But now, with his father gone and the people back home desperately in need of the proceeds from the cattle drive, Shell was determined to uphold his father's reputation and recover their money. He knew the odds were against him. Finding his friends would be difficult. Getting the money back would be nearly impossible.

Great character who fought hard to keep the promise his father made
Louis L'Amour books are all good westerns.
Tuckers settling of the score with the thief who stole the money (when you listen, you will understand).
Tucker was a strong-willed, Who wanted to do what was right to those who trust in his father with the cattle. I enjoyed Tuckers difficult adventures that drove him to make right that was wronged.
As with any of L' Amour's books there in a solid story that captures your imagination and makes you feel you are living it with the characters. I highly recommend it T anyone that enjoys adventure and the western genre.
Fantastic story. Very good and we'll told. Held my attention Thanks L'Amour. Wish you were still alive.😟
This is another good L'Amour story, done in his normal style. Loving L'Amour like I do, it was very enjoyable. The narration was excellent at well.
Love LAmour's writing in spite of the uncanny luck his heroes always seem to have. Thanks Louie for another great read.
Love La More. He is my favorite western writer. I grew up reading his books when I was a kid and he opened up an entirely new world to me through his knowledge of history and how he blends that into a story.
Overall, it's a good book, however, I found it to be very similar to the Proving Trail. I liked them both, but thought the Proving Trail was much better. What these two books do speak to, is the importance of a mentor figure, or someone who can provide a positive influence/guidance in one's life, and La More is masterful at getting that point across.
