CHAPTER 3 - STRANGERS AT BLACK CREEK

" I guess I know the words o' that song o' yours, Jake. How 'bout tryin' another ? "
Jake, about the oldest of the rangers Governor Deakin had recruited to bring law and order to Arizona, grunted. Jake wasn't the man to talk more than necessary. He had other characteristics, too.

Its results were not only apparent in poise, in skin colour and in mentality, but also in his uncanny woodcraft, his ability to move silently, in his kinship with the wild.
Governor Deakin, when he was appointed to Arizona in succession to a weak Governor, had recruited a picked band of rangers, his special lawofficers whose job it was to bring order to the state grown lawless. Jake and Ned, in their different ways, were almost his star men. But not quite, because there was Bill Rankin, Deakin's top ranger, who could give points to anyone and win. But Jake and Ned were invaluable ; tough, experienced and able to use their minds. Almost always they rode with Bill Rankin, the trio forming a combination which hadn't yet failed in any assignment however difficult. There were a whole lot of bad men now languishing in gaol who knew all about that.
