Will this old fashioned girl do the right thing or succumb to temptation?

Wanda has to jettison her cargo on Dora, a planet on the frontier of space. Instead of a minor disciplinary hearing – her choices are death or life in a hard labor camp.

At the last moment she receives an offer she can't refuse, a chance to be sheriff of Goodfriend, the only shuttle- port city on Dora. If she accepts she’ll be given a section of land to homestead. Her dreams will come true.

Wanda arrives on Dora smack in the middle of a land war.

The natives are determined to grab part of their planet for themselves. Sensing an injustice Wanda must decide to do the right thing, will she side with the locals or her employers and secure her own future.

Will this old fashioned girl do the right thing or will she succumb to temptation and gain her little piece of paradise on a new world?
