As sleepy as Buffalo Peak's been, legendary marshal, Elwood "Firestick" McQueen, and his deputies "Beartooth" Skinner and "Moosejaw" Hendricks never expected a couple of drifters to wake it up--by kidnapping two lovely ladies in town.
Hardly the sharpest quills on a cactus, these dim drifters call it courtin'. Firestick doesn't see it that way. Now the woman snatchers are heading for West Texas with their reluctant brides-to-be--and unwittingly plunging trackers Firestick and Moosejaw headlong into a rescue. With only Beartooth keeping the peace back home, Buffalo Peak's wide open for an outlaw ambush.
Sure as dirt, a gang of owlhoots clean out the bank, grab a hostage, and flee, spurring Beartooth on a deadly chase. In one lousy day a lot of people have gotten on Firestick's bad side. And with rifle cocked, and vengeance burning, Elwood "Firestick" McQueen is going to prove just how unforgiving his bad side can be.

Being the all-around assistant, typist, researcher, and fact checker to one of the most popular western authors of all time, J.A. Johnstone learned from the master, Uncle William W. Johnstone.
He began tutoring J.A. at an early age. After-school hours were often spent retyping manuscripts or researching his massive American Western history library as well as the more modern wars and conflicts. J.A. worked hard—and learned.
"Every day with Bill was an adventure story in itself. Bill taught me all he could about the art of storytelling. ‘Keep the historical facts accurate,' he would say. ‘Remember the readers, and as your grandfather once told me, I am telling you now: be the best J.A. Johnstone you can be.'"
