Zack Clay was a quiet man looking for a quiet life. He hadn't reckoned on Dutch Haas, Burt Helidon and sundry gunfighters brought in by these two range-grabbers coming to hassle him. Clay met fists and boots with the same, gunsmoke with gunsmoke. In the end, they hung a badge on him. That was when things really hotted up in Benbow. But they all made the same mistake, these hustlers, gunslingers, and wild trail-men - these townsmen who put dollars before citizens. They found out the hard way that Zack Clay was also stubborn - and he would never go down without a fight.
