When John Milman and his daughter, Georgia, saw Shay's hombres squatting on their land, they knew they were licked. They had no guns. Their cattle had no water. Suddenly, the Milmans couldn't believe their ears. A handsome youngster named the Kid was offering help...was promising to tangle with Shay's cutthroats single-handed. John Milman couldn't understand why this gunman wanted to help. When Georgia looked deep into the Kid's eyes her heart leapt and she thought she knew why. But both of them saw that the Kid's guns spelled trouble for Shay, and the captured waters of Dry Creek would run red when this duel of kid against killer exploded!
