Matt Bardoul signs on with a wagon train headed for the Bighorn Mountains to search for gold. He discovers a group of outlaws in the party and discovers the love of his life. He becomes the only man standing between innocent people and a brutal conspiracy of gree, lust and cold-blooded murder. Book keeps to the L'Amour tradition.
Another excellent trip through the old West...I found it interesting, as I was reading, to discover that the year in which it was placed--1877--was the same year the the Microphone was invented! Such a vast difference between events! I will certainly be reading more of l"Amour!
