Settlers on Red Creek, dedicated to peace, are attacked by Jake Harmer, foreman of Gavilan ranch. He and his men blow up their dam and shoot down 14 people in cold blood. Clayton Adams, son of the settlement's founder, swears to his dying father to seek justice under the law, not revenge with his own hands. His relentless pursuit of Harmer and Oakley, the ranch superintendent who ordered the attack, creates almost unbearable suspense that lasts right to the shattering climax. The author of this engrossing story knows the territory and takes time to share its beauties with the reader. Recommended for public libraries. -Sister Avila, Acad. of the Holy Angels, Minneapolis Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc.
