No writer of cowboy stories can equal B. M. Bower. Ever since Chip of immortal memory Bower has been easily first among the writers who stage their dramas in the wide spaces of the cattle country. There is something new about this novel. The old legend about the Spook Hills comes to life when the Sunbeams newest hand, a young tenderfoot named Shelton C. Sherman, takes a ride in the hills and discovers tracks made by something that seems neither human nor animal. The subsequent sighting of a bear-like creature might explain the brutal murder of a sheep rancher. Or does it? The mystery deepens and already-high stakes become higher! A very fine story.
