Families feuding over water rights, pits against one another, two big men--one, a rough ranch foreman, the other an equally tough "dude" who is a former sea captain.

Indexer Notes

Comments: very realistic art, in Dell/Western's finest movie adaptation tradition. Correa contributed to numerous of these type issues (films, tv series), his clean, realistic/romantic style especially suited for same. Last story page contains Dell Comics "A Pledge to Parents."
