|The Strawberry Mountain War
by Fisher, Dave P.
It was the tough old widow, Abby Chaney, who found Devon McCloud bushwhacked and left for dead on her Double A ranch. The old woman and her daughter had been fighting a losing battle against cattle baron Charles Sampson and timber man Egert Taylor who both wanted their land. On top of that, the Parker clan was cleaning out their cattle. Odds for the Chaneys were considered slim to nothing.It was supposed to be an easy takeover, but the big men never counted on Devon McCloud buckling on his gun and stepping right in the middle of their plans. Sampson and Taylor had no intention of giving up, and Devon McCloud had never in his life backed down. War was about to break out in the Strawberry Mountains. The Chaneys' odds had greatly improved, but were they good enough to win?
Devon McCloud didn't go looking for trouble, but it came to him, he didn't back down. Drygulched by rustler's he's found by Abby Chaney, a widow losing cattle. Once Devon's wounds healed, he goes hunting. Trying to help Abby and her daughter, Katy, they begin a long battle against a cattle baron on one side and a timber magnate on the other. They didn't expect Devon McCloud to make it his fight as well. His Scotsman's blood up, Devon pits his strength and determination against incredible odds. And with a little help from his friends, he just might win.
