Willie McGuire was one of those jug-headed cowboys who just couldn't seem to stay out of trouble. Basically a harmless -- if somewhat foolhardy -- fellow, he certainly hadn't meant to tangle with Jeremy Hooker, the most feared killer in the territory. But Willie had one too many one night and darned if he didn't accidentally break the gunman's leg. He sobered up right fast the next morning when his sidekick related the incident and left town pronto, hoping the whole thing would be forgotten. But Hooker was a man with a long memory and Willie had seriously damaged his reputation, t to mention his leg. His $1,000 reward for Willie's capture was eugh to send every bounty hunter and lawman hard on Willie's trail.
