Tom Atkins was out of work, so when the Norden brothers offered him a job, he figured he might as well accept. They were nice enough, and had just bought a small ranch nearby. Atkins could do worse. But as time went by, he began to notice things. Small things, but troubling. Some of the folks in town didn't seem too friendly to anyone from the Norden ranch. And some of their neighbors, like Orvus Fey from the large Argentine Ranch, were downright rude and insulting. Small things have a tendency to become big things, though, and it wasn't long before Tom realized exactly what he had gotten himself into when he hired on to work for the Norden boys.
