Mark Holden was heading for St Louis to doctor for a California-bound wagon train when he came upon an attack on the Kremmling to Granby stage. The stage was carrying nothing but four women, coming in answer to an advert for wives for some of the town’s worthies. So what had the outlaws been after? Putting the stage out of business was the simple answer and saving it embroiled Mark in a whole heap of complications. These complications involved a pushy mining company, crooked law and a scheming, deadly ramrod, who had cleared the range of opposition and spread fear amongst Kremmling folk with the help of his shadows, the four hot-tempered Dando brothers. Another complication was the stage owner’s beautiful, but fiery, shotgun-toting daughter. Holden could spare Kremmling just two weeks so he had to prod and push hard to inflame men easily moved to reach for the hardware. Raised Cheyenne style, he turned to his Indian friends, who owed him some favours, as things moved to the inevitable lead-filled climax.
