Duvarney has been riding the trouble trail all his life-and texas was his last chance. He'd come to Matagorda looking for a herd to drive to Kansas. Instead he found a town torn by hatred-a raging blood feud in which every man had to pick a side...or die choosing.

But the danger from outside Kitter's camp is nothing compated to the threat within, as Duvarney begins to suspect that Kittery's woman isn't everything she appears to be. Now Tap is discovering that he must go to war again. But will it be with the Munsons-or with his closest friend?`
For me, this story wasn't as good as some of Mr. L'Amour's books have been that I've read, but I am not sure this would be the same for someone else. It was mostly about a feud between two families in Texas, but not between the Sacketts, and about a group of men driving cattle.
