Synopses & Reviews
Ben Cowan and Bijah Catlow had been bound as friends since childhood. By the time they grew to manhood, Catlow had become a top cowhand with a wild streak. It took just one disastrous confrontation with a band of greedy ranchers to make him an outlaw. And when he crossed that line, it was up to U.S. Marshal Ben Cowan to bring him in alive--if only Catlow would give him the chance....
Catlow would do anything to own a legendary pot of Mexican gold. So he hijacked the mule train carrying the gold, defying the U.S. law and the entire Mexican Army who were steps behind him. Catlow didn't give a damn, because he knew all the answers -- except how to get through Seri Indian country rich and alive.
