In this brand-new Ralph Compton Western, a hard-bitten gambler and a hard-luck kid begin a treacherous
journey to new lives.
In Omaha, Tom Calvert boards a riverboat to play high-stakes poker, but accusations of cheating cause some
serious trouble, and a deadly gun battle ensues.
Tom is injured and knows that his enemies will be looking for him, so he reluctantly accepts a bargain from young
stowaway Asher. In exchange for Calvert teaching him gunslinging skills, Asher will guide him to a possibly mythical
town of peace and plenty called Friendly Field. To get there they just have to battle assassins, dangerous Shoshone, and
the rough wilderness of the Oregon Trail.
