Sunset Maloney is about to find big trouble in the Big Sky country of Montana. Like Alan Ladd as Shane, he's riding into the middle of a ruthless land grab, and his fight for what's right takes an unexpected turn . . . in the face of a young, attractive woman. Slim Trotwood is a cruel, greedy tinhorn--a gambler with little money and less skill--who's determined to take possession of all the land in Puma Pass, whether by fraud or by force. And Sunset's the only man willing to take him on. Faster than greased lightning with his six-gun, nothing can stop him from taking Trotwood down . . . until he meets Tinhorn's Daughter. Just arrived from Boston, she's as naive as she is beautiful, and Sunset falls hard for her. But if he can't make her see what kind of man her father really is, he may fall even harder. Because if he loses this fight, Sunset may never see the sunrise again.Hailing from the western states of Nebraska, Oklahoma and Montana, Hubbard grew up surrounded by grizzled frontiersmen and leather-tough cowboys. When he chose to write stories of the Old West, Hubbard didn't have to go far to do his research, drawing on his own memories of a youth steeped in the life and legends of the American frontier. Also includes the Western adventure "When Gilhooly Was in Flower," in which there's romance on the range, as an unlikely cowpuncher mixes lassos with literature to find love in Gunpowder Gulch.
