In 'The Man Who Tamed Tombstone,' singer Kate Lawrence and Eddie Hammer, her manager, arrive in Tombstone for a series of concerts and find themselves in danger as a power struggle between Sheriff Nevis and Marshal Graham plays out. Blackballed by the freighting companies when his caravan burned three years ago, killing five men, Blackie Barr in 'Bullets and Bullwhips' is given a second chance by Pop Trevers, whose future depends on making good on a government contract. In 'Owlhoot Maverick,' Johnny Peters, out to avenge the death of his father, the outlaw Concho Peters, becomes conflicted when the man he seeks saves his life and offers him a job on a cattle drive. In 'Bullets Bar This Trail,' Tracy Bannerman, Hal Wells, and Carol Hastings race to Butte with forty thousand dollars in cash to exercise the option on the Golden Ace mine for their client, but soon Tracy becomes suspicious about the intentions of the other two. In 'Dead Man's Journey,' when Ray Bandelier is suspected of killing the man who grub-staked him, he sneaks out of town with an acting troupe that soon finds themselves the target of outlaws."--Back cover.
