It was the month of May in 1896. For ten years there had been peace between the whites and the Apaches. But a handful of braves, weary of the uneasy peace, had left the San Carlos reservation and left a trail of death along the upper waters of the Gila River.

For more than three weeks a troop of the Seventh Cavalry had been in pursuit. At that same time, Sam Mattern had left Tucson without knowing if any of the renegades had been rounded up. Sam was riding in response to a letter from Tom Meadows of urgent appeal which reached him after many months.

Tom Meadows was in trouble. A new outfit had moved into Hatchet Valley. The outfit was ramrodded by a man whose greed and cruelty were his dominant qualities.

What awaited Sam on his arrival at the ranch, and the trouble that threatened Tom Meadows and his family, and how Sam ended up tackling all of it is the theme of Mason Macrae’s new Western!
