My book has a different cover, but same title. The premier old west storyteller spins a tale of danger for a young miner with a fortune of gold and a lovely lady. Another intriguing tale of survival and trailblazing in the frontier. No old west tale would be complete without breath taking scenery, danger and Indians. This is another great L'Amour classic story by an American classic author.
