Abstract:

He was a solitary prospector in the vast Sonoran Desert, but on a shelf of rock he left a little tin for his daughter ... Richard Gale's idle sojourn in the West came to a screeching halt when he arrived in an Arizona border town and plunged into the life of a border ranger. Yet when he met Nell Burton, he realized for the first time why the West had beckoned him. But Nell's background wasn't very impressive - she had no family, no dowry. Then one day Gale found a little tin in the Sonoran Desert that gave Nell a name, a family, a legacy ... and a fortune.
