Summary
"After the Civil War, bickering brothers Jamey and Jake Galloway set out from Serenity Falls, Texas to seek their fortune at poker tables across the west. Cautious Jamey prefers being a live coward to a dead hero, but brash big brother Jake rarely backs down from a fight. Cheated out of a fortune, they return to Texas to find their hometown threatened by a land-grabbing cattle king and a shady banker. Can Jamey and Jake cook up a scheme to outfox dirty-dealing scoundrels and save Serenity Falls--without getting themselves killed? Inspired by classics like Maverick, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Silverado and The Sting, Galloway's Gamble is a timeless tale about battling greed and corruption, as relevant today as it was in 1873!"--
