He was raised by the mountain man called Preacher, and he was said to be the fastest gun alive. ... Until he hung up his gunbelts to raise a family. Smoke Jensen was the last mountain man -- and he was a force of nature. But Lee Slater and his gang of lowlife desperadoes didn't know that. Stirring up a motherlode of trouble for the retired gunslinger was Slater's first mistake. Shooting Smoke Jensen's wife, Sally, was his second. He wasn't going to live to make a third.
