A confrontation with the outlaws ends with Weldon firing a gun and being unsure whether it hit its mark. — Ten years later, Second Lieutenant Weldon Holland barely survives the Battle of the B... more »ulge, in the process saving the lives of his sergeant, Hershel Pine, and a young Spanish prisoner of war, Rosita Lowenstein -- a woman who holds the same romantic power over him as the strawberry blonde Bonnie Parker, and is equally mysterious. The three return to Texas where Weldon and Hershel get in on the ground floor of the nascent oil business.
In just a few years’ time Weldon will spar with the jackals of the industry, rub shoulders with dangerous men, and win and lose fortunes twice over. But it is the prospect of losing his one true love that will spur his most reckless, courageous act yet -- one that takes its inspiration from that encounter long ago with the outlaws of his youth.
