Abstract:

"Yakima Henry may be tougher than anyone else in the Arizona Territory-- as a half-white, half-Indian man, he has to be. So when a pack of thieving curs leaves him in rough country minus one prized horse and two well-worn boots, he aims to get back what's his. The hell Yakima raises in the process lands him in jail, but opportunity is about to spring him out. Wealthy Cleve O'Shannon and his lovely wife, Ashley, have a proposition for Yakima. Cleve's brother is trapped on a desolate mesa-- along with a mother lode of silver taken from their mine-- by desperadoes and revolutionaries. The O'Shannons need a hard man to lead them through hell to save their family and their fortune. For his freedom, Yakima agrees. But freedom won't matter if he's not alive to enjoy it."--Page 4 of cover.
