FROM THE BACK OF THE BOOK:
Corey Lane. As a boy he stood between Chupadera County and the bloody knives of the Apache. Now he's sheriff of that town, and the folks there don't know whether to be glad or sorry. For Corey Lane, boy-hero, Civil War Veteran, seasoned fighter, is ruled by a mighty rage and a searing pride ready to explode.
Reporter Jim McPherson will follow Lane into battle. He will bear witness as the lawman staggers from the blood-soaked land a legend, and he will be the luckless soul who uncovers the horrifying truth: Corey Lane is riding a deadly path to self-destruction. And the only question that remains is--how many others will he take with him?
From the sun-drenched Ojos Negro Basin to the merciless badlands of New Mexico and to the enemy camp of Victorio, savage chief of the Apache, Corey Lane emerges as a strong, exciting saga of the West, written by a writer who knows it and its history well.
