Dave brings Gray Cloud home and chains him in a shed that he uses as a blacksmith shop. Dave expects now that, as a result of this feat, his cousins who have always called him a dummy will for the first time come to respect him. But his cousins don't feel anything of the kind. As far as they are concerned, this is the time to put a bullet in Gray Cloud and claim the $2,500 reward. Dave escapes with Gray Cloud to live in the wilderness, away from humans . . .

"Jury of Six is a steadily moving western set against the backdrop of 1880 Nebraska. Families like the MacMahons were the backbone of the developing west. It was a time when the law was spread thin and honest men and women took care of difficulties in black and white. Good men were respected; bad men were dealt with by the law of rope and gun. For eight years the disappearance of Niobrara ranchers Owen and Aiden MacMahon remained a mystery. When an outlaw gang begins running roughshod over the country leaving another MacMahon for dead, the hard-as-nails MacMahons go hunting for those responsible only to find an old enemy and the answer to the eight-year-old mystery"--

Saturday night for the town of Dunnigan, Wyoming in The Valley of Thunder is something to be dreaded. For months now hoorawing range men have been bursting into Dunnigan, bringing fear to its citizens. Now that Hugh Mitchell, the new town marshall, has come to Dunnigan, his job is to put an end to this chaos.

The Buckhorn is owned by two brothers, opposites in all things. Gard Ashley is like steel in his determination to keep the Buckhorn the best cattle ranch in the Dakota Territory. Court Ashley, Gard's massive, truculent brother, sees Buckhorn's prestige and wealth as an excuse to dissipate and swagger. Elisa Benton, a dance-hall singer, loved by Court and intensely disliked by Gard, is able to see through them both. If anything, this tension is only increased when Court is murdered and robbed. Gard is bent on personal vengeance, but Elisa Benton seems only to want to protect the criminals from Gard's wrath.
