In this H.B.W., Dan Whittle, from a small town near Kansas City, grew up reading about a famous gunslinger in magazines. His mother was shunned for having a child with a married man, as well as having a child out of wedlock. Of course, this left Dan to have a miserable life, accept for when he read about Bob White, the gunslinger. His mother passed, and let him know that if she wanted anything for him, it was to find his father.
This gunslinger, according to rumor, lived near a place called Pierceville. Dan moves to Pierceville after deciding to find his childhood hero and leaving a town where nobody respects him. Deciding to lie in wait in a Saloon, he comes across information that White shows up from time to time. What nobody knew, however, was Seven strangers would show up looking for him too. After realizing these men are set to kill his hero, he decides to help. As 'it' hits the fan, Bob White is wounded by one of the strangers and Dan wounds the stranger in return. Suddenly, Dan Whittle is in the middle of an altercation that has nothing to do with him at all...or does it?
I thought the obviousness of it all would make this hard for me, but it turns out this one is STILL and adventure worth checking out. I recommend this for any Holt fans.
