One man had too much and his neighbor had too little. One man had more cattle than he could feed- another didnt even have enough to feed his family. Yet it might never have begun. A compromise might have been made if the woman had stayed away. For the spark that started the fight was a woman - a girl like a flame, who offered two cold men the great illusion of eternal spring.Fresh from military college, young Wayne Staples rode home to the mountains grandeur-- and violence -- of the High Sierras in the 1890s.

Wayne soon heard the talk in town -- the feud on Sliding S Ranch between his father, Jack Staples, and Chet Orrindorf. Once fast friends, they had fallen out -- over a woman. Irritated and ashamed, Wayne tried desperately to check his fathers infatuation -- but then, he too, met the woman.Pieta San Juan was her name, dark-haired and lovely- and even as she defied Wayne, her challenge stirred him.

Suddenly there was gunplay by night and murder filled Jack Staples heart. But Wayne knew he would ride out of the high passes once more, and soon -- and would not ride alone.Dedicated to Lurton Blassingame (John Reeses literary agent at the time).
