The lonesome gun
Perley's elder brother, Rubin, who manages the Triple-G Ranch decides to try breeding some Hereford cattle with the ranch's longhorns. He asks Perley to deliver the contract for the Herefords, a simple task. But nothing ever remains simple when Perley is involved. And for the reluctant fast gun, it means a nightmare journey through hell itself. The trouble starts when Perley and his sidekick, Possum, meet some damsels in distress -- a lovely group of saloon girls with a broken wagon wheel. Being a good Samaritan, Perley feels honor-bound to help them. But when the travelers cross paths with an ornery gang of vicious outlaws, things turn deadly -- and fast. It only gets worse from there, for Perley agrees to escort them to Nacogdoches -- next to Angelina County, a section of which is infested with a special breed of vermin known as the Tarpley family. And this corrupt clan has a gunslinger -- who'd love nothing more than to take down a living legend like Perley Gates. -- Amazon.com
