When rancher Tom Allison discovered that one of his 1,000-pound steers had been taken down and dragged a quarter mile over a rocky hill, he first thought it must have been a bear that did it--probably a large grizzly.  The real shock came when he realized that the steer was taken by a cat, a four hundred pound cat!  But Tom has even bigger problems coming his way...men who would steal everything he owns, and a seven-foot Indian who is out to murder his son!
