Jeb West is a 19 year old hand for the Double B Ranch on the spring roundup when he accidently comes upon a rustling operation. While he is watching the rustlers he hears a voice that is seared into his mind as the leader of the gang that murdered his family five years before. He takes action to capture the person and it leads to his uncovering a plot to murder all of the people on the Double B, stealing their herd and selling it. He is joined by Jeb Nash, a former gun slinger and mountain man, in his quest to thwart the nefarious action of the gang. During their preparation they discover that the gang has a strangle hold on the Idaho Territory of 1872 and the law seems to not be able to do anything about it or even recognize the danger. While they are gathering a counter force they enlist the aid of the Chinese community of the territory and become close friends with a Wu Han, a former Officer in a Chinese Princes private army, who along with the Prince, is in exile from the present Chinese Emperor . The trio enlists the aid of various ranchers, miners and other citizens to combat the on coming onslaught of the Double B. Also during their travels they fall in love with three ladies who are very involved in the womens right movement. The action takes place in the 1872 Southwest section of the Idaho Territory centering around Horseshoe Bend and Boise City. There are many different characters brought into play, some historical and most fictional. The settings depict what life was like in that time with all of the hardships and the luxuries of the time.
