Basis for the Academy Award-nominated 1940 film directed by Raoul Walsh starring John Wayne, Roy Rogers, and Claire Trevor; the only film in which Wayne and Rogers appear together, and the second of only two films on which Wayne and Walsh worked together after Walsh discovered Wayne as a 23 year-old prop man.

A woman marries a seemingly-peaceful Kansas schoolteacher only to find that he attacks both sides during the Civil War for his own profit.

Very Good in trade-size wrappers (softcover). Repair to an inch and a half-sized loss to the bottom right hand corner of the front wrapper, lightly wear and soil.
