Summary:  Tough circuit judge Orrin W. Travis has reluctantly engaged seven outlaws to help him keep peace in the wild desert town his family used to call home.  Somehow they have to prove they deserve an amnesty for their misdemeanors, but it's far from a done deal.  Especially not with the baggage they all bring, and the past lives they've led.  Judge Travis is an uncompromising campaigner for morals and justice in the west, and the seven desperately need to keep his support.  Despite a necessary measure of trust there are some things about them he just doesn't know.  So, when the seductive bright lights of Wickestown camp pitch nearby, it proves a catalyst for revelations that could lose them all their shot at a new life.

Make sure to select the entire page (Control+A), since the text seems to be white on white, making navigation impossible. Some of the photos are still there, others are missing.
