Seeking to escape the notoriety of his past, Gain Carson rode away from the Kansas town where he had earned his fame twenty-five years ago. However, the aging lawman and gunfighter cannot ride away from his reputation or the fast gun that rests on his hip. When he receives an urgent telegram from Nora McDonald, a woman he formerly loved, Gain leaves Montana and heads southward.
Boot Hill Valley is a funny name for a town. It’s also a Colorado town with a dark, brutal, and lawless past, a place which can no longer hire a marshal. Chance McBride, one of their former lawmen, is a man who believes he has lost everything, And with nothing left to lose, he foolishly turns to the bottle. But despite Chance’s drinking, he still hasn’t lost the love of a good woman, his wife, Amy.
A short story by R.G. Yoho, but well-worth the read.
