Bitter wind / Wayne D. Overholser.


""When you live the sort of life I do--the life of a hired gun--you start to figure you can handle any tough hand who comes along. But the tough hand I had to drill right between the eyes just happened to be a Flynn. And even though it was self-defense, there's no way his pa and the rest of the clan wouldn't come after me. In a wild race across the frozen prairie, their first bullet killed my horse and their second caught me right in the thigh. But it was what happened next that changed my life forever..." Jake Murdock was a small Wyoming rancher with big ambitions. When he spies a lone rider being pursued by the Flynns, he opens fire, killing four of them and sending the other two racing for home. Bill Lang has been severely wounded, so Jake takes him back to his ranch where Ellie, Jake's live-in mixed-blood housekeeper, nurses him back to health. Jake hopes to convince Bill to become partners in the ranch, but they will need money to fund the venture. When they hear General Crook needs scouts, Jake sees a way to earn their money. They go to Crook's camp and are hired as scouts, but have no idea how their lives will change in the coming months." -- Provided by publisher.
