Fifteen new head of horse for breeding stock. Five hundred in gold for a better year for his family. All he had to do was ride through the wilds of Arizona with a friend. An easy job.
Chaos erupted at the herd rendezvous. Shots fired in an ambush. The horses were gone. No stock, no gold, failure. Battered, bruised and beaten. Then Stolter woke up to find three Mexican kids watching him. His horses waited in the next valley and the animals secretly carried the gold.
Five hundred miles to his front gate. Alone. Dogged by outlaws, nick-of-time help from a new friend along the trail. The telegram gave him the ultimate bad news about home. Twenty-two stitches, a thundering herd, bullets fly and miles of dust. What could go wrong, did go wrong. A ten-day trip turned into months of Hell.
