RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE

Even the wild purple wastland falls into jeopardy when a gunman named Lassiter and a rich homesteader names Jane Withersteen join forces--and fates--to take on an entire violent town.

"Spare the boy!" whispared Jane.
"You can't save him now," replied Tull, stridently.
The restless movements of Tull's men suddenly quieted down. Then followed a low whisper, a rustle, a sharp exclamation.
"Look!" said one, pointing to the west.
"A rider!"
Jane Withersteen wheeled and saw a horseman, silhouetted against the western sky, come riding out of the sage. He had ridden down from the left, in the golden glare of the sun. An answer to her prayer!
"Do you know him? Does anyone know him?" questioned Tull.
His men looked and looked, and one by one shook their heads.
"Look!" one of Tull's companions whispered hoarsely. "He packs two black-butted guns--low down--they're hard to see--black agin them black chaps."
"A gunman"

Lassiter was a gunman with a reputation as black as his clothes-and a mighty vengence to fulfill.

Jane Withersteen was a homesteader on the Utah frontier-the richest woman in the Mormon village of Cottonwoods.

But that fortune was in danger. The Mormons wanted her to marry Elder Tull-and they had more in mind than the good of her soul. They wanted control of Amber Spring, the precious water that gave verdure to the wild purple wasteland.

When their methods of persuasion turned dirty, jane found it hard to defend herself against the entire town. But that was before Lassiter rode in, strapped on his famous guns and stood up to the angry mob.
