Publisher's Summary

Tell Sackett had been lured into the Apache's mountain stronghold by the icy beauty of his brother's wife. He didn't go alone. John J. Battles, Spanish Murphy, and the half-breed Tampico rode beside him. Each was driven by his past to test his speed and cunning against an enemy who could smell a white man a mile away, and then shoot his eyes out at a dead gallop. It was a contest few men could enter, and fewer still could hope to win.

Classic

Just another great story written by the best western writer ever. All his stories including this one are full of details true to the early west. A must read for western readers.

One of my favorite Sackett books.

LL sure has "been there, done that" - from wandering and riding the rails to prize-fighting and boxing to bar room brawls snd more, like being a Merchant Marine and a Navy officer during WWII. i highly recommend his autobiography "The Education of a Wandering Man".
