Synopsis: In this Ralph Compton western, home is a battlefield....

Buck Fletcher, infamous shootist, was once a boy raised in a cabin near Two-Bit Creek in Montana. Returning home to pay his respects at his parents' graves, Buck finds an unconscious woman in the woods—bleeding from a head wound. She might be the victim of a range war that’s brewing in the territory.
 
Buck soon finds himself drawn into the escalating conflict—courted by one side, threatened by the other. What the feuding ranchers don't realize is that Buck's guns aren't for sale—and if anyone gives him trouble, he'll start shooting lead for free....
