Summary

Summary

These two tales set in the wild desert pit the forces of fierce nature against the sturdy character of the Western man.

"Law of the Desert"

Shad Marone is a lone gunman on the run from the law. He shot a man in a fair fight, but the man was the sheriff's brother, and Shad knows he'll never get a fair trial. He is being tracked by a man named Lopez, and after three days in the desert it looks like they'll both die of thirst—unless, of course, a miracle should happen.

"Desert Death Song"

Nat Bodine had a choice: to die by hanging or take his chances in the desert. But when a good woman believes in a man, he finds the will to survive.
