He lit out of Texas with ten dollars and a swayback horse, a wanted man at age 13. Kid Parmlee's crime--he shot the man who shot his dog, Farty. Now, in the town of Fosterville, the Kid has found a hideaway--until his legend finds him. The West's scrawniest gunslinger has just been recruited onto a bounty hunt for a gang of criminals. For the Kid, it's the beginning of an explosive adventure of both sides of the law, in the company of bank robbers, back-shooters, friends, traitors, and one very beautiful woman named Doc--with a pot of gold waiting at the end of the trail.

Spur Award-winning author Robert Conley continues the tall tale of little Kid Parmlee, a young man without a home, without fear, and with just enough sense to become a true legend of the frontier.
