"Killer from the Pecos": Texas Ranger Chick Bowdrie rides into the wild town of Almagre trailing a Pecos bank robber who has left two men dead. All Bowdrie has to go on is an unconvincing eyewitness description, a name scrawled on a tattered postcard, and his own skills as a master tracker. But Bowdrie will need luck as much as skill when looking for answers in Almagre, for the town is gripped in a stranglehold by a ruthless cattle baron named Bonelli, and to bring his quarry back, Bowdrie will pin on a marshal's star to face down Bonelli and his gunmen.
"Lit a Shuck for Texas": Johnny Buck is a young Texas cowboy working for the Bar W. In the process of roping an old stob-horned steer, Buck is thrown from his horse into a cleft where he encounters the mystery of a murdered man and a bag of ore that just might be gold. The taciturn owner of the Bar W discounts Buck's story of the "gold", but Buck soon finds that some of the shadier ranch hands are gunning for him. With a widow's daughter, a lost mine, and a missing prospector in the balance, Buck has no choice but to solve the mystery...or die trying.
