The fourth book in the People of the Plains saga.
"The Cheyenne are on the attack, taking hostages, killing settlers, and attracting the attention of Washington. Again, the Army is ordered into action. In the meantime, a train full of emigrants is heading further west, to Fort Laramie and beyond. Traveling in disguise is Benoit's and Dobb's old enemby 'Notch' Henderson, still in possession of the money he'd stolen earlier. As Benoit races madly to intercept the train and arrest Henderson, a group of Mormons in Southern Utah devise a plan to stop the train for good. Religious bigotry, revenge, and the bitterness between North and South heat up to a fever pitch. Now Benoit, Dobbs, and the entire nation must face a struggle with age old questions that pit loyalty to the past against the individualism of the future."
