Clay Bell spent the last six years fighting Indians, rustlers, and the wilderness itself to make the B-Bar ranch the prize of the Deep Creek Range. But Jud Devitt, a ruthless speculator from the East, now threatens everything Clay has worked for. Devitt, holding a contract with the Mexican Central to deliver railroad ties, wants to harvest timber off the land where Clay grazes his cattle. Backing Devitt are shady politicians, a dishonest banker, and fifty of the toughest lumberjacks in the county. But as Colleen Riley, Devitt’s fiancée, realizes the brutal game he’s playing, her disapproval of his actions, and Clay Bell’s obvious integrity and charm, pull her toward a destiny that will tip the scales in their bloody battle over timber and cattle.

I'm not much into cowboy novels, but I wanted something light after some heavy literature. This fit the bill. L'Amour is actually quite an accomplished writer. Well developed plot, good character descriptions. And he clearly has studied and understands the history and laws and manners of the time.
L'Amour's novels follow a fairly predictable plot line; which is what makes them so enjoyable to read for me. You know how the story is going to progress, you know in the end the good guys win. The characters and their development makes you both like the good guys and really dislike the bad guys, while still keeping you entertained and involved.
Wanting to stay current with newest novels has not always provided the best reading experience. With Mr. L'Amour's books I have never been disappointed, they always provide an escape for many hours. All but the short stories (because they are too short), make it possible for me to feel like I am experiencing the story first hand.
