Cowhand is wounded and loses his life savings when ambushed. He vows revenge.
Rattler is set in the mid 1800s in Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado. Ben Turner has been a cowhand for ten years, saving his pay to purchase cattle for a ranch further west away from the glut of people where he worked. Waylaid and severely injured on his journey, he's befriended by a mountain man named Pots (so named because of the jingling pots attached to his pack mule retrieved from a deceased peddler). Pots nurses him back to health and allows Ben to work in his hidden silver mine and keep what he finds.
Ben's uncle Wade Turner, a retired gunfighter, taught Ben how to handle a gun and a Bowie knife. Ben's not quite as fast as Wade, but is more accurate. That ability comes in handy as Ben winds his way west.
