A severe head injury causes loss of memory, with no name, Dave responds to an internal compass to guide him in search for his old life. Without recall of another life, now known as Dave Larson, he finds work as a ranch-hand in 1887 Montana Territory. Significant troubles plague the ranch owned by Buff Dugan; malicious destruction of fences, attempted cattle rustling, and a midnight ambush of the foreman. Dave takes on the foreman duties of the beleaguered ranch operation, but functions less ably due to overwork and the disabling head injury. Rancher Curly Watson is suspected of provocations to disrupt the peace of the valley, but his motives are hidden. Dugan’s niece, Lucy Smith, arrives in search of her missing husband, only to discover he is already working on the ranch. Learning his amnesia is selective, a sense of guilt pervades because eighty thousand in gold bars is missing, and Dave is sought by the authorities as the thief. Guilty is guilty does: a warrant for his arrest impels Jim Bowen, his old partner, to go after Dave. Mistrust and guilt, deprivation and pain, perseverance and courage achieve journey’s end.

The author, Nellie Pallagi, has a life time interest in the western genre. The books include good character development, plenty of action, and a story plot designed to bring back interest in Western lore and storytelling. Set in the 1880’s, the stories relate to Dave Smith’s efforts to carve out a life with skills that include a fast gun, a race horse, and a Cheyenne partner. Follow the adventures of Dave Smith and Sam Eagle Feather Larson from west Texas through New Mexico territory, north into Wyoming and on to further western exploits.
