What Lengths Would You Go to Keep Something That Wasn't Yours? Edwin knew he was dying, and that he wouldn't be there to help his son grow up. He wanted his son to become a strong man, one who would stand on his own. So Edwin gave him the name Merriwether - Merriwether Gamble hated his father for giving him such a name. It was his cross to bear, causing him to overreact time and again to the taunts and teasing of the other boys. But it made him grow up tough, as his father had wished. Perhaps too tough. After an ill-chosen confrontation sends Merriwether to prison, his life takes an interesting turn when he befriends Whitie Fowler, his cellmate, who helps Merriwether survive the harsh realities of prison life. But Whitie has a secret, one that could make them both rich or get them both killed. With Whitie's Gold, author H.D. Williams skillfully blends an exciting story line with quick-paced action to create a real page-turner of a Western.
