On a western cattle ranch in 1896, honest, hard-working, ranch hand Colter Barnett, having been wrongly accused of stealing a valuable silver picture frame, is gunned down in cold blood by his boss, wealthy landowner Henry McKenna. Later, when McKenna discovers the silver picture frame to be “under a pile of old rags” in his closet, he tries to hide his mistake by burying the object with the body of his victim.

That’s when the curse begins, in Len Francis Monahan‘s book “Rattlesnakes, Ghosts and Murderers.”
