These two tales set in the wild desert wastes pit the forces of fierce nature against the sturdy character of the Western man. "Law of the Desert" Shad Marone is a lone gunman on the run from the law. He shot a man in a fair fight, but the sheriff is his bitter enemy and Shad knows he'll never get a fair trial. He is being tracked by a man named Lopez, and after three days in the desert it looks like they'll both die of thirst-unless, of course, some miracle happens. "Desert Death Song" Nat Bodine had a choice: to die by hanging or take his chances in the desert. But when a good woman believes in a man, he finds the will to survive.
