A family feud and the desire to avenge his sister, leads the hero of this story to adopt the life of a gunman when only a boy in Arizona. He has some narrow escapes, but aided by some very wholesome friends, among them two girls who furnish the love stories of the book, he is saved from himself and turns his energy to the work of a "man four-square" as a Texas ranger.
