Summary
  • Color illustration on front cover of a cowboy in a jail
  • He killed when he had to, stole when he needed to, and ran from the law all his life. For him as for most of them, the outlaw trail ended at the 13 steps leading up to the gallows. He was Lee Jackson, the Powder River Kid, a mal hombre seared by the scars of a hundred bloody battles from Wyoming to the Argentine. Now, in a sun-baked cell in the Arizona Territory, Lee Jackson waited out the days until his appointment with a noose. He had plenty of time, time to recall a long chronicle of tragedy and violence--his wild and dangerous stripling days with the Hole-in-the-wall Gang; the high-life and boredom on an ill-gotten ranch in South America; posse-haunted years on the lonely trail and, always, Maria, the beautiful girl whose memory haunted him from the grave.
