A century ago the frontiers of the west sounded a call to the  men who were strong and tough and ambitious and sometimes they were lawless with their swaggering contempt for justice. This tale tells of the people of those times of the wild west and is set in the ghost town called Yellow Sky which is inhabited by an old prospector and his tomboy granddaughter. Gregory Peck reprises his 1948 film role as Stretch the leader of a gang of outlaws who seek refuge in Yellow Sky. 

The director of the film, William Wellman introduces this radio version

Based on a book by  W. R. Burnett and adapted for radio by Richard Alan Simmons.
