Sammy Gregg had been born and raised in Brooklyn. He had worked hard but hadn’t been able to save enough money to marry Susie Mitchell‚ his girlfriend since childhood.
Greg believed he needed $15‚000‚ and he gave himself six months in which to do it in the West. Although he was a small man with a frail physique who knew nothing of fighting‚ of guns‚ of horses‚ he did have incredible determination. So taking the $5‚000 he had saved‚ he headed into the West‚ arriving in Munson‚ a tough lawless town‚ and arriving the same day as Chester Ormonde Furness‚ another greenhorn‚ but one with a difference.
Gregg was calculating enough to find a chance in Munson to achieve his objective‚ even though it would mean going up against Furness who proceeded to carve a niche for himself as a thief and road agent.
