Home to TexasBook - 1988
From the time she crossed the Rio Grande, it was plain that Ann Royer was going to cause some changes in Del Rio, Texas. Bringing news of her parents' murder and the destruction of their ranch in Mexico, she had ridden alone all the way to Texas to lay claim to the giant Twin R ranch ostensibly belonging to her Uncle Phil. Ann wasn't alone in wanting the Twin R. Old Man Ace Pease, owner of the neighbouring Lazy P, was anxious to double the size of his own spread by any means, and it didn't take long for the two of them to form an alliance. Ann's ambition combined with Ace's greed seemed too formidable for anyone to resist, that is until Dork Wallace, Pease's ex-foreman, came to Phil's aid with a little-known fact of Texas law. But by then the dispute had gone far beyond the talking stage, and both sides looked to outside guns to enforce their claims to the contested Twin R, where tragic amounts of blood would be shed before the issue was settled.
