In Other Men’s Horses, a young 1880s Texas Ranger must track down a fugitive who gunned down a notorious horse thief. Reaching the West Texas town where Donley Bannister was last spotted, Ranger Andy Pickard follows Bannister’s trail across treacherous, unforgiving terrain. But when outlaws ambush Pickard, Bannister risks his life to rescue his pursuer-instead of high-tailing it in the opposite direction-and provides life-saving medical care. As Pickard recovers, he realizes how beholden he is to Bannister and wishes he weren’t duty-bound to bring him to justice.
