When Tom Chantry comes west to buy cattle he runs into trouble - he's challanged to a gunfight, and rather than fight, he leaves town and is branded a coward. When he tries to hire men to help move his herd no one wants to ride with a leader who is called a coward. He ends up having to work with the man who challenged to the gunfight. Life is not made easy for Tom.

Tom Chantry vowed he would live his life without ever carrying a gun. But when he drives a herd of cattle north of Dodge, he discovers that life is treacherous for an unarmed man...especially for one who's been branded a coward. On the drive, Chantry encounters some of the land's most dangerous characters -- from notorious gunman French Williams and the murderous Talrim brothers, to a threatening tribe of Kiowa and an enigmatic femme fatale. As the drive twists Chantry's past and present together into a tangle of guilt, redemption, and buried family history, the line between friends and enemies grows faint -- and Chantry must sort out the people he can trust from those who want to do him harm.......
