He was called Nevada, a name he took to lose his past. As a boy he had been thrown among brutal and evil men. He had worked himself above their influence time and again, only to be thrown back, by his own desire for justice or vengeance, into the midst of strife. In Forlorn River Ben Ide and the mysterious Nevada got into difficulties and found themselves face to face with the law.
Nevada himself is the hero of this new romance. One night Nevada drops into the Gold Mine, Lineville’s gambling hell, where a girl lies dying on the floor where her drunken companion had thrown her and Nevada did the one thing his code allowed. After the shot there was Nevada or no Jim Lacey for four years. The mystery of his whereabouts, and the dashing gallantry of those years forms the heart of this thrilling new romance.
Ben Ide and his family are saved from ruin through Nevada’s efforts but his love for Hetty is turned to tragedy through his two unscrupulous accomplices, and in spite of himself, he is once more an outlaw. The action, never letting up for a moment, sweeps over plains, and mountains, and deserts.
