An outcast fights for an identity separate from that of his criminal father, for a woman he'll never be allowed to keep, for a fate that doesn't have him staring down the barrel of a .45. He is a gunfighter reviled as the worst of men; she is the sheriff's wife he's sent to rescue.

Short Summary

Seven years ago, he was just a boy, smitten with a girl, wishing for a life like everyone else's. That was before he shot and killed a man, before he rode with a gang of Arizona Territory's most indiscriminate villains, and before he ended up in Yuma Prison.

Having been shot by his nemesis, the hero keeps his promise to return to his lady. He finally discovers his worth in the moment of his death.
