Will Cannon hears about a gang of outlaws that are robbing trains and raiding small towns West of Santa Fe. The gang of dirty cutthroats murdered several innocent people, including women and children, during their many robberies. Will Cannon has what any man that would kill a woman or child deserves. A bullet thru the heart from Will's Colt 45 is good enough for the evil excuse for a man. Will rides West of Santa Fe and finds the outlaw gang hiding near the small town of Whiskey Mesa. Will buys horses and cattle and brings box cars of food and whiskey into town to replace what the outlaws stole. He gets some cowboys and bronc busters to help him and they give the outlaw gang a dose of 45 caliber justice the way only Will Cannon can dispense justice.
After witnessing the murder of his family at thirteen years old, Lobo Johnson has drifted aimlessly into a rough life.
Unable to hunt and kill his family's killers, he instead wreaked his vengeance on other blood-thirsty outlaws.
He owed allegiance to no virtue, lived by his ready gun, and robbed and stole when he wanted money or food.
He was a friendless man, always riding alone, relishing the loneliness of the trail.
But then Stella Stadden stumbled across his path.
Her brother and father have been brutally murdered, and she is also in danger.
Adopting the role of her protector, Lobo becomes embroiled in one town's struggle against ranch-owner Reuben Ridge and his brutal gang of riders.
Torn between old friendships and new rivalries, Johnson takes up his gun in pursuit of justice, all the while hiding from his own reputation and the cash reward placed on his head...
Can Lobo redeem his bad reputation?
Or will he too fall victim to the Murder Range?
Murder Range is a classic Western adventure.
