"Eons past, an ancient creature the size of a bunkhouse lived out a solitary life and died all alone in a rugged canyon. Millennia later that canyon occupied an isolated corner of C. L. McSween's Rocking S. Ranch. Then McSween decied to dam up the canyon to provide water for his cattle. Paleontologist from back east, discovers the cache of bones from this long-dead Jurassic monster, he realizes they are a priceless treasure trove. C. L. McSween and his daughter Libby don't see it that way. They're concerned only about ensuring the survival of their cattle. On top of that, McSween is a superstitious ex-mountain man. He considers the bone digger a grave robber and wants him off his ranch. To Chad Larimer, foreman of the Rocking S. Ranch, Cobsworth's discovery is nothing more than a bunch of old cow bones until strangers from back east show up desperate to get their hands on them. Among the Easterners is the infamous paleontologist Professor O. C. Marsh. Marsh wants the bones for his museum and is prepared to have them at any cost. He's brought hired guns with him, and whoever gets between him and those bones is going to die. Unfortunately, Chad is the man in the middle."--cover.
