Riding home with a deer he shot, Jess is attacked by three Sioux braves wanting the meat. Jess is having a hard time when the fight is spotted by a man on a hill above. He rides down firing at the braves causing them to run off. He introduces himself to Jess. He is Clay Jackson, a charming self-styled Robin Hood, who has come to Laramie to ply his trade; to rob from the rich and befriend the poor so that witnesses to his thieving ways are few. His presence creates friction between Slim Sherman and Jess Harper, with Jess beholden to Jackson for saving his life. When Jackson goes free after his trial for holding up the Laramie stage, events are set into motion to drive Jackson to steal again, only it costs the deputy sheriff his life. Slim is set to avenge the deputy, despite the fact that Jackson is the faster gun, which puts Jess between his best friend and the man who saved his life. Slim's determination to bring Clay Jackson to justice could cost both Jess and Slim their lives. Written by DarSpi
