Johnny Fristo and Speck Quitman, younger, hard-working cowboys from castle Concho, Texas, have labored six months--at $20 a month--on the Devil's River. Their boss, a hawk-faced cow dealer named Larramore, reneges at the cash he owes the men and sneaks out of the cow camp and heads for San Angelo.
Fristo is tall and skinny, his brain 100 miles away; Quitman is brief, bandy-legged, and "bedazzled via the flash of playing cards and the slosh of whiskey." the 2 are as diversified as sunlight and moon yet are inseparable—and now they've got a project: locate Larramore and extract the cash he owes them.
