This is set in a tighter historical frame than a lot of Westerns, and more fully explores the culture of the white man's west. A young lawyer gets a crash course in the peculiar misery that occurred in the present state of Oklahoma in the 1890's.
The self governing natives there were having a great deal of difficulty in dealing with relatively lawless refugees from the more tamed states. He joins an expedition to recover criminals that strayed into Arkansas, and this gives Jones a chance to play with the culture of the east, that of the West, and that of the Indians. It's an interesting read from that viewpoint. ( )
