The premier chronicler of the American West, legendary storyteller Zane Grey has captivated millions of readers with his timeless adventures of life, death, gunfire, and justice. This is the Old West in all its glory and grandeur. Forged in blood. Enflamed by passion. Emblazoned with bullets. . .

In the law of the gun, a man must shoot his way to innocence. At least that's how Captain McKelly of the Texas Rangers puts it to Buck Duane. On the run for killing a man to save his own skin, Duane must now infiltrate the deadly Chelsedine gang. These ruthless rustlers are running amok in Texas and it's going to take a matchless gunfighter to stop their rampage. With the legendary Rangers providing firepower, Duane has more than a fighting chance. Or so he thinks. When he uncovers a secret that could destroy them all, the bullet storm is biblical--and a legend rises out of the dust.

This book was a good read until Zane Grey started confusing
history with fiction. He has a Captain Macnelly of the Texas
Rangers, who I believe is based on Captain Leander Mcnelly
of those rangers. McNelly is credited with fighting the
fictional Cheseldine gang in the Big bend area. Also, the main
character Buck Duane is credited with killing John Wesley hardin,
instead of the actual killer, John Selman. Sometimes it's ok to mix history
with fiction, but at least make sure the historical parts are accurate.
