He killed before he could shoot, kissed before he could love, won before he could lose. He was too green to live, too lucky to die. He was a natural, born to be a legend.
Everyone in town says Braddock is innocent. Two men are dead at the Bar-T Ranch - a clear case of self-defense. But an angry Army officer has personal reasons for pressing charges and Braddock is on the run, headed for Mexico with marriage on his mind and high-spirited Phyllis at his side.
Between Mexico and freedom lays treacherous Apache land. It could spell cruel death. For Braddock, it becomes a haven - a place to discover a priceless piece of his heritage. But a relentless sense of duty and a fat bounty to bring Phyllis home spur Marshall Dan Stowe on to smoke the Pecos Kid out. And before he knows it, Braddock is alone, riding for the border and a shootout that will brand him an outlaw forever - or leave him stone-cold dead.
