A RISKY ENDEAVOR
Strapped for cash, Luke Sunday takes a job as a scout for the army’s war against the Sioux. Raised by the Cheyenne and Crow, he runs afoul of the army when they attack a peaceful Cheyenne village, believing it to be Sioux leader Sitting Bull’s camp. When he accuses them of wrongdoing, the outlaw Bill Bogart leads the charge to oust him from the campaign.
Set adrift, he happens upon the Freemans, who need a guide to the Gallatin Valley. When they meet the sinister-looking Sunday, they’re hesitant to hire him. But when Mr. Freeman is killed in a Sioux attack and the reckless Bogart shows up, Mrs. Freeman must put her trust in the man called Sunday.

Even at seventeen years old, Carson Ryan knows enough about cow herding to realize the crew he’s with is about the worst ever. They’re taking the long way around to the Montana prairies, and they’re seriously undermanned.
While rounding up strays, Ryan hears gunshots ring across the range. Suspecting an Indian attack, he gallops straight into a U.S. Army raid instead. The outfit he’s with is nothing but a bunch of murdering cattle rustlers, and the law thinks he’s one of them. Tied up, thrown in jail, and tried by a court that’s more interested in hanging a man than learning the truth, Carson has only two options: escape or die trying.
