On the run…
Newt had always dreamt about becoming a cowboy.
When he wins a shooting competition and is offered a job as a guard, he sees it as an opportunity to finally fulfil his lifelong dream.
But the job is with Doc Solomon, the crooked owner of Golden Pacific Railroad, and things quickly turn sour.
One night Doc unwittingly witnesses Solomon’s wrongdoings first hand and is forced to kill a fellow guard.
Self-defence it may have been, but soon a number of men are after Newt, each with their own reasons to catch him.
With only Solomon’s prestigious racehorse for company, Newt must use all his cunning to escape the law, bounty men, and savage killers on his tail.
Will he be able to outrun the price on his head?
Or will The Long Chase prove too much and the scheming Solomon get his way yet again?
