The temperature’s rising in the west…

Lee Royle had come to Silver Bend to build a well, at the urgent request of his brother Ethan.

There had been a long, painful drought for many months, and cattle had started to drop like flies, under the relentless glare of the sun and not a drop of rain.

But the Circle-Star ranch seems unaffected; Boss Quinn, the ranch owner, had built a dam across the Snowy River, preventing any water from reaching Silver Bend.

The small ranchers can only sit and watch as his steers grew sleek and fat, whilst their own waste away before their very eyes.

With the stifling heat the tension grows, and the small town ranchers become increasingly aggravated towards Boss Quinn.

Only a single spark is needed to set off The Water War, and it’s not long before a full blown battle erupts in the west.

Then Luke Muldoon is shot and all hell breaks loose…
