There, in the high, lonesome country, he came upon a vein of pure gold.

    Tell Sackett had been lured into the Apache's mountain stronghold by the icy beauty of his brother's wife. He didn't go alone. John J. Battles, Spanish Murphy, and the half-breed Tampico rode beside him. Each was driven by his past to test his speed and cunning against an enemy who could smell a white man a mile away, and then shoot his eyes out at a dead gallop. It was a contest few men could enter, and fewer still could hope to win.

    Tell Sackett was packing 30 pounds of gold and no worries, until he got to the ferry at the Colorado. Trouble found him there. It looked like a black-eyed woman, pretty as a young filly and a hundred times more set to buck any man. It looked like a gang of hardcases with ideas about other folks' gold. And trouble looked like the other side of the river, the hottest, driest, most brutal desert on the continent.
