Red Anthony had the lazy look of a tenderfoot and the lightning draw of a devil. Raised in a circus, he grew up knife-throwing and horse stunt riding. He follows a Frances Jones, who has stolen his heart, out to Dodge City. On his first day searching for her he makes enemies with some criminals. They're soon ganging up to find him and "shoot him dead". By the time Red rode out of Dodge City, he was one of the fastest gunmen around. And on his trail was a band of the toughest, most vicious outlaws ever collected in the West. Will The Tenderfoot escape the clutches of the evil criminals? Will he ever find Frances Jones?
