Summary

"The Strong Shall Live": When they burned his home, he rebuilt it. When they shot at him, he shot back. But now the man they call Cavagan is in the worst bind of his life. With his hands tied and his body stiff from beatings, he has been left for dead at the bottom of a deep sand pit in the searing Santa Fe desert. Sixty miles from the nearest water. On foot, without a weapon, in 120-degree heat. Only one thought drives him on: "I shall Live! I shall live to see Sutton die."

"Keep Travelin', Rider": After an absence of several years, Tack Gentry heads home to his Uncle John's G-Bar Ranch. But when he arrives, the entire town has changed. What's more, strangers have taken over the G-Bar. Strangers who claim that Tack's uncle died in a gunfight. But Tack knows better. He knows his uncle was a strict Quaker - a man who never even owned a gun. The new sheriff in town wants Tack to get out of town, pronto...but Gentry vows to stay put and fight for the land he believes is his.

"Strawhouse Trail": On a seldom-used smugglers' trail between Mexico and Austin, a man lies dying. Texas Ranger Chick Bowdrie takes the stranger's body to Valverde, the nearest town. Upon arriving, a crowd gathers, watchful and silent as Bowdrie tells his story to the sheriff. In the crowd is the beautiful blonde Rose Murray, owner of the RM Ranch. Rose explains to Bowdrie that she has reason to believe the stranger was coming to see her in order to right a terrible wrong. Twenty years ago, the Chilton Gang robbed her family. Once Bowdrie discovers the identity of the dead man, he wonders if the surviving members of the Chilton Gang have returned to recover.
