They were wanted men, those five hard-riding travelers of the still night trails…. Mavericks all, they had entered outlawry for five different reasons, drawn irresistibly down the Owlhoot Trail from five different walks of rangeland life. They became one living inseparable unit of grim, uncompromising justice, united as one man by their friendship, their burning championship of the underdog—and the high, white flame of their courage…. Step up folks and meet the five Mavericks—Lance Clayton, Doc Grimson, Charlie Parr, Lockjaw Johnson, and Flint Maddox…. You’ll ride with them through many a blood-tingling tale of high adventure and heady romance during the months to come. We know you’ll like your saddlemates!
