Johnny "The Kid" McBane has made a name for himself in the back rooms of Chicago as the best bare-knuckle boxer in town. But when he refuses to throw a fight, he must leave town-and his boss-in a hurry. He doesn't know he'll end up a private in Custer's army, fighting Indians-and fighting for his life.

Ages 12 and up or so.
