Outlaw Birch Hamilton was born Birch Kent, a bastard boy who was thrust into a life of crime at the age of sixteen. Now he was attempting to do the near impossible - break out of Yuma Territorial Prison. Once out, his plans are two-fold: to return home to see his beloved mother and to be reunited with the woman he has loved since his youth. He also intends to settle a score with the meanest man he ever knew - his father. But with bounty hunters and the law on his trail, and his outlaw partner Molly Floyd at his side, Birch's plans prove far from straightforward.
