Here is a rich and serious novel of the violent West. Full of the authentic sounds and colors of Wyoming cattle country in the late nineteenth century, it tells the true story of a long-vanished timeâthe era of the cowhands and the bloody Johnson County range wars.
Riders of Judgment centers on the three Hammett brothers and their cousin Rosemary, whom all three love. To the oldest brother, Cain, falls the lot of avenging the murder of his father, grandfather, and brother. Cainâwho is in a sense a cowboy Hamletâis torn by conflicts within himself. He desires peace yet is forced to wear a gun. He is a law-abiding man by instinct yet has to take the law into his own hands. He is loved by a woman but rejects her because he feels unworthy of her love.
Then one spring morning the cattle barons invade his territory, and Cainâs hesitancy vanishes. One manâs inner struggle becomes a fight to turn the cattle kingdom into a free country for the small stockman.
Riders of Judgment is the final book in Frederick Manfredâs five-volume series, The Buckskin Man Tales.
