The story: When two hard-case characters rode in from the Badlands, Blue Pete smelt trouble a mile off. Nor was his instinct at fault. Outbreaks of rustling quickly followed the arrival of these men... More > and suspicion turned to certainty when they made for the hills driving Blue Pete’s own steers before them. Although a man of peaceful pursuits, Pete reckoned there were some things no man could do to him and get away with, and stealing his cattle was one of them. His half-breed blood afire, he followed in pursuit and plunged blindly into the trap which had been set for him. Quickly he realized that this was not just a rustler’s ruse but an ingenious trap laid by an old enemy intent on levelling the score between them. Usually, in such circumstances, a man’s only chance is to come out shooting, but this time it didn’t work out quite like that. Truth says: “Blue Pete is the most popular of cowboy characters in fiction. . . . Mr. Allan has the technique of the Wild West at his finger-tips.”< Less
