Hanging Woman Creek – Louis L’Amour
Barnabas Pike is a peace loving fellow. So is his pal Eddie Holt, a black boxer who has to make it in a white man’s world. They are both only looking to make it through a harsh Montana winter, collect their pay and find somewhere to settle down for good.
They cross paths with an Irish immigrant and his pretty daughter, who have been forced off their land. One of the baddies is an old acquintance of Pike’s and both he and Holt gets involved in a fight that isn’t really theirs, but that they can’t just walk away from.
Will they get through the winter… and see justice done?
