Jim Cleve has been deemed “a
good guy” all of his life, and it agitates him to no end. Even his girlfriend,
Joan Randle, has scorned him for this “weakness,” telling Jim, “You haven’t it in you even to be bad!”
Dejected and hurt, Jim abandons the life he has known for the gold mining camps
along Alder Gulch in southern Montana. It is here, among the thieves and
murderers, that he must make a new name for himself.
Meanwhile, Joan realizes the
danger that she has put Jim in and rushes off to save him. However, when she
stumbles across the ruthless desperado gang leader Jack Kells, it is soon Joan
who is in need of rescue. When Kells tries to rape her, Joan grabs his gun and
shoots him. But something keeps Joan from leaving him to die. In the face of
Joan’s loving spirit, Kells experiences his own change of heart. But it is too
late; Kells’ outlaw gang arrives and takes Joan hostage.
So begins the border legion
adventures of roving bandits, lust, and greed. With Jim’s search for a new
identity, Jack’s moral dilemma, and the fight for Joan’s freedom, this
thrilling story portrays the epic theme of man’s continual struggle between
good and evil. Download and start listening now!
