Reverend Jamison


Lucas and Mark return to North Fork after being away two weeks selling their cattle. Lucas learns that the town has hired a new preacher but isn't quite prepared for what he sees. The man they've hired is the Reverend Jamison, who Lucas knew 25 years before as a gunslinger who roamed the Territories burning out homesteaders and forcing people off their land. He simply can't believe that a man who was capable of doing that could now be a man of the cloth. When two men come to town gunning for Jamison, Lucas has to decide what to do. Written by garykmcd
