Fighting Parson. “John Watkins came to the Western frontier to preach a great message, but the reply to that message was too frequently enclosed in steel jackets full of deadly lead! And so John Watkins became the Fighting Parson, the strangest figure in the West! And his blazing six-shooters pumped terror into the most evil hearts....” After his friend Bill, the sheriff of Squaw Ridge, is murdered, Watkins takes up the guns to avenge him, and then keeps them to enforce the Good Word. Watkins appears in “Poisoned Pipers!!” and “Queen of Eden!”
