"Helen Messiter, a young woman fresh from the conventional East, drives her motorcar into Wyoming, and pulls off the road to breathe deeply of the beauty and serenity surrounding her. Just then, exploding gunfire shatters the stillness, and she gets a bird's-eye view of the battle playing out before her. Half-a-dozen men have one man cornered. Helen can't just stand by and watch a man [get] killed. Helen, the new owner of the Lazy D Ranch drove away with the victim of the attack. But ... she soon discovered the men shooting at him were her own cowpunchers, and he was the notorious outlaw Ned Bannister."--p.  of cover.
