"Life, not death, drove Jubal Young, but memories of his ma and pa, and his beautiful, bright sister are all he has left. Memories of the peaceful days before Jubal stumbled home with his .22, his blood running cold with fear, terror, and anger. When it was over, the homestead was half burned to the ground. Someone had to bury the bodies. Someone had to set things right. Now, as Jubal rides west into New Mexico, he remembers his family's laughter and love, his pa's wisdom, ma's thick books, and everything that was defiled by a band of drunken renegades towed along by one man's murderous grudge. A reprobate lawman won't believe his story. A soft-hearted mountain man won't survive Jubal's one-man war. And a judge and his beautiful daughter cannot stop Jubal from climbing a peak of blood and madness: for justice, or payback, or something he can live for--or die for--redeeming."--Back cover.
