Chancy is drifting when he comes upon a bunch of older men trying to drive cattle to Kansas. Their luck has run out and they're ready to give up. Chancy buys into their herd and into their trouble. Throw in a bunch of herd-cutters, a gang of rustlers and a beautiful but thoroughly evil young lady. Stir in a sweet girl who has always believed in Otis Tom Chancy, and a wealthy cattleman who trusts him with setting up a new ranch. You get an exciting story with several twists and turns. Fun. ( )

Chancy, 19 , has been on his own since he was 13. His father was hung for a crime he really didn’t commit and Chancy has never forgotten. Determined to become a man that has a reputation for respect and dignity, he sets off on a series of adventures that help him learn and grow. A coming of age story told in a story teller tradition. Lots of action without bad language, sex, or graphic violence. 1968, 165 pages. ( )

Product Description He was an orphan from the hills of Tennessee and he hadnt eaten in three days. With the front of his stomach making friends with the back, he was in no position to let an opportunity slip by unnoticed. And when Chancy defended his new herd of cattle with a shotgun, he didn’t miss. The dead man left a pistol on the ground. Chancy needed a spare and, after stowing it in his bedroll, forgot about it. He had a cattle drive to finish and a profit to make. But the gun had a history. Another killing had taken place and Chancy would never know the truth until it was too late. Now, locked in a jail cell with an angry, drunken mob outside and time running out, he must somehow find a way to prove his innocence. From the Inside Flap Cattle drive in a deadly country... Poor, orphaned at thirteen, Otis Chancy left the Tennessee mountains with nothing but a will to work, a drive to succeed, and the backbone for a fight. So when a fight comes his way, along with a chance to buy a herd of cattle and start his own spread, nineteen-year-old Chancy doesn't hesitate. He guns down a man who'd been using a sheriff's badge to justify cattle thieving. But when a mysterious woman betrays him, he will find himself stalked by a deadly gunman. Despite his youth, Chancy won't run--and when his past catches up to him in Cheyenne, he'll make his stand, whether his partner and cowhands back his play...or whether he fights alone. ( )
