CHAPTER 1 - BLACK CREEK FEUD

father had been foolish to buy the place; that inexperienced as he was, in those days straight from the city, he had been taken for a ride. In any case he wasn't the man to make anything of ranching, but lately there had been bad trouble not of his making, which had resulted in heavy losses.
Losses, yes, the work of unknown, unidentified enemies. Indian Range was up against it, up against natural disadvantages and also human enemies, men who were strikingg stealthily, rustling cattle, stealing cash, poisoning the water.
Rocky stared up at Tuck bleakly. Tuck didn't like the Bruce family, he'd made that abundantly clear during the years old man Bruce had been at Indian Range. Was he taking dislike to the point of rustling cattle and poisoning water ? Not for the first time Rocky wondered. There was Spike Borden, too, who also disliked old man Bruce. He was Tuck's frienda vile man, Rocky believed.

As he went he caught a glimpse of a lithe figure moving out of sight round the yard fence. Rocky recognised the guy, a pure-blooded Indian but he was now too distraught to take any interest even in somebody who had been engaging his attention lately. He entered the yard moodily. Tuck and Spike moved away down the trail towards Black Creek.

He was very like Tuck, with whom he lived, with the same square face, thick fair hair, small eyes set too closely together. Although he was only Rocky's age he seemed much older. He was very heavy with great shoulders always hunched.
He came across the yard with some of his cronies. Bud was top-dog at the school, a natural bully. In a
