Given the current state of affairs in Gravestone, Arizona, the mayor fears for his life and hasn't seen the sun in months.  With the last three sheriffs mysteriously shot in the back, Gravestone has become a lawless town run by a bunch of outlaws who call themselves The Ranchers.  Wylie Arp, the former sheriff of Duck City, Kansas, has left his career as a lawman and traveled west to Gravestone with his brothers and friends.  He has sunk his life savings into a business and plans to live the remainder of his days free from the stress of law enforcement. Little did Wylie know what awaited him in Gravestone.

Soon after Mr. Arp arrived in Gravestone, the mayor asked Bella Starry  to invite everyone in town for a celebration.  The mayor has high hopes that Wylie and his brothers will consider taking over as the law enforcement in town - given their history in Duck City. He desperately needs to get The Ranchers under control or better yet…run them out of town.  It's nearly time to gather at the Gravestone Saloon.

Katie Fishman helped put the wild in the phrase the Wild West!  As Doc Galaday’s longtime girlfriend, she’s also struggled to stay on the right side of the law.  Doc’s solid friendship with the ex-lawman Wylie Arp has proven to be a positive force with this pair. However, Katie has a rather shady past. She was origionally from Gravestone and used to date Wavy Will Bronchus when she was a teenager. After breaking up with him, she moved in with her aunt and uncle in Duck City. That's when when she met Doc Galaday. She refuses to talk about her former flame with her boyfirend, and is worried what Doc will do when he finds out the truth!
