Shelby's father won't allow her to marry Lucky Doolin because he is only a poor cowboy. The banished cowpoke meets and gambles with a stranger with a hoof for a foot. Promised seven years of good luck if he refrains from all ablutions, Lucky agrees to give up his soul if he washes. He becomes the very rich and very dirty "Grizz."

Combining strands of tall-tales and folk tales, the author has produced a destined-for-popularity, genuinely funny story with a surprise ending.
