Forty Lashes Less One was a return to Leonard's western genre. Set in a desert prison, the story centers around the conflict-turned friendship between an African American and a Native American.

With Forty Lashes Less One (1972) Leonard explores the comic tone that would mark his later books. Set, like most of Leonard’s Westerns, against a stark Arizona landscape, the novel is a masterpiece of unbroken tension, as the hero confronts a violent new war for all he holds dear. Set within the harsh confines of Yuma Territorial Prison, the novel recounts the unlikely friendship of two prisoners-one part Apache, the other African American-planning a near-impossible escape.
