Picking up only weeks after the end of A Town Called Fury, Hard Country continues to tell the story of the founding pioneers of Fury, Arizona. Jason Fury has unwillingly become the Marshall and the population has risen to 112, with new settlers arriving more and more. The residents of Fury find out that starting a town is just as difficult as traveling to one, with this unkind territory of inhospitable lands, dust storms, drought, hostiles, and violent bands of ruthless outlaws.

Trouble begins when Matt MacDonald claims his range, which just happens to belong to Ezra Dixon and then Wash accidentally insults Flores gang and ends up shot in the arm, landing Flores and his men in jail. Instead of heeding Dixons threats, Matt is staunch in his decision to keep his land, and hires guns by the names of Bill Rye, Jack Dupree, Ned Potter and Nib Sloan to help him defend it.

But when Bill Rye kills one of Dixons men in a draw, Dixon comes to town looking for blood. Finding the law stacked against him, Dixon hires gunfighters of his own: Flint Gallister, Little Ben Williams and Trapdoor Hargity. Upon that discovery, Jason rides out to warn Matt but while he is gone, Fury is attacked by bandits belonging to Juan Alba, the "Scourge of the Borderlands". Jenny Fury, Abigail Krimp, Olympia Morelli and Megan MacDonald are taken hostage and its up to the men of Fury to band together to form a posse and go after the women before they end up in Mexico.

Hard Country is like a Die-Hard film gone Wild West: full of excitement, tension and barrel loads of action. A perfect follow-up to A Town Called Fury.
