Among the eleven stories included here is "Whack-Ear's Pup," in which a cowboy finds a small puppy abandoned on the plains and brings it back to the Triangle R. The puppy kills the pet jackrabbit of the owner's daughter, setting off a crisis. In "Strange Fellows," drifter Dan Torkaway shows up at the Triangle R looking for work. His only possession is a beautiful black horse, but trouble erupts when a stranger rides in intent on killing Torkaway's stallion. "Feud Fight" is a gripping narrative of range wars -- a new one that threatens, and one in the past that led to bloodshed.
