1880s Nebraska ain’t always the nicest place to be. With rustlers crowding the Niobrara, and the Keya Paha vigs itchin’ to string somebody up, Holt County Deputy Sheriff Whit Branham is on the job. With a hot Stevens 10-guage and a strong sense of justice, Branham brings law and order to O’Neal City, the unorganized Wedge, and the wild open range in this series of short stories and novellas.
I’ve become a big fan of Richard Prosch’s short fiction, and this short, not-so-sweet tale is one more reason why.”
–Peter Brandvold/Frank Leslie, author of the Ben Stillman and Yakima Henry novels [on Branham’s Due]
