He needed to be, for he led a gang of outlaws who took over whole towns in Arizona , looting and killing. One day that gang rode into the peaceful little burgh of Gloryrise. The law was powerless to resist them. Soon that place, too, lay at their mercy. But, as he lay wounded, the town marshal said to his son Shaun: ' T h e r e ' s o ne man who draws a gun faster than Guthrie....one man who can lead our people against him! He's a trail scout and folks call him Catsfoot....fetch him....fetch Catsfoot....' The quiet, gentle Catsfoot answered that call. So came ab ou t a te rr ib l e battle of wits and courage. A battle in which the ferocious Apache Indians were to take a decisive hand. This junior Western is told against the authentic background of ravaged Arizona in the years immediately after the Civi l W ar. .. ."
