Chancy Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Chancy

From the beginning, the deck was stacked against Otis Tom Chancy. However, he didn't let that keep him down or keep him out of trouble - he dared to take risks and take responsibilty for them. Now those risks had gotten him a start in honest cattle ranching with a good partner, a good friend and a good girl on his side. He also had a group of no-good cattle thieves aiming to take his herd away from him and they preferred to do it over his dead body!
