Territorial Justice is the story of, the life and times of Elias I. Haussler, a cowboy drifter, and White Feather a white girl whose parents are killed when she is a baby. She is rescued and brought up by a Chief of the Apache Nation as a warrior. When grown she ‘marks’ her man, Elias I. Haussler, the cowboy drifter, as directed by the Spirit of the Wind. They marry and together help build a ranch and a town in the Dakota Territory.
White Feather is diabolically murdered. The Apache Nation relentlessly demands and inevitably extracts an equal punishment for the horror that lead to White Feather’s death, from those who murdered her.
White Feather’s Indian ways, strength, love, devotion and death instill in Elias the courage and conviction he will need to become a Territorial Marshal.
After White Feather’s death, Elias becomes a United States Marshal for the eastern half of the Dakota Territory. This is a vast area without the rule of law and order. It is for Elias and his Deputies to introduce and bring justice to the people in the growing Territory.

Stuart Haussler, on graduating from college in 1950, became involved with the military in Korea. Subsequently he became a Doctor, Teacher and Rancher. A Rancher because of his love for the Hereford and the respect held for the men and women who developed the west and with whom, through their descendants, he has worked with all of his life, and now writes about. Put out to pasture in 1986, he set about to entertain by writing western and military novels.
Territorial Justice is an intentional fabrication of the mind.
