Tiger Eye

Because “Killer” Reeves, down on the Brazos in Texas, had killed a man in self-defense, he had been drawn into a feud. His sons were brought up never to lie, to live straight and—to be dead shots. One by one they fell victims of the feud until only the youngest, “Tiger Eye”, was left. Rather than be drawn in and have to become a killer himself, he left home and went to Montana, looking for a job as a cowboy. 

Bertha Muzzy Sinclair, best known by her pseudonym B. M. Bower, was an American author who wrote novels, fictional short stories, and screenplays about the American Old West. Her works, featuring cowboys and cows of the Flying R Ranch in Montana, reflected "an interest in ranch life, the use of working cowboys as main characters (even in romantic plots), the occasional appearance of eastern types for the sake of contrast, a sense of western geography as simultaneously harsh and grand, and a good deal of factual attention to such matters as cattle branding and bronc busting.
