They broke out of jail and dared the law to catch them. He walked out of jail--and swore he would. When three desperados escaped from the new jail in Rio Arriba they grabbed Emma Steinmetz, a fine horse--and lots of guns. Jim Douglas had been doing time too--framed for debt by Emma's greedy father. Now he's leading the high country hunt of the convicts. But a strong-willed woman has joined the posse, with her own ideas about right and wrong. And Douglas has something left to learn.
In this powerful, gripping novel, Frank O'Rourke captures the raw conflicts and hard realism of the American West. A master storyteller, he makes the lawless, brutal frontier come dramatically alive.
