Description
Years ago, Charlie Pike witnessed the horrors of the War Between the States from the losing side. Now all he wants to do is work his cattle ranch and marry the spirited schoolmarm. But when his old commanding officer calls him to action, he cannot refuse. Brigadier General Henry J. Dryden was a blustery, demanding leader -- and he saved Pike's life in the war. Later, he became a judge in the war. Later, he became a judge in the New Mexico Territory. Now he's dying, and he wants Pike to escort him back to his native Texas. It's a simple request -- and a deadly one.
