Owen Wister's The Virginian is the classic tale of a proud man on the Wyoming frontier who stood tall when others ran and who knew the cold feel of hatred and the heat of burning lead. In the style and Voice of Wister comes the brilliantly crafted sequel to his immortal work. The Virginian had found peace in Medicine Bow, Wyoming, but everything changed when, without warning, the quiet valley exploded with the sound of gunfire and the smell of powder smoke. A range war, threatening to engulf the entire territory, raged like a windblown prairie fire. It seemed no one could stop it until a man reached into his past to find either his former greatness . . . or his doom.
