Kent Wingfield, a young cowboy, rides into the desert with an old prospector, looking for gold. Then one day the old man realizes this will be his last trip. He reveals that he was once an outlaw in a still flourishing gang. And he asks Kent to settle an old score for him. Kent agrees to go. After all, he is footloose and handy with a gun, and the old man has always been square with him. And besides, in the outlaw's secret hideout lay both a fortune in stolen gold and a beautiful innocent girl!

This is another of the canyon country books with a hidden outlaw haven. Here lives the outlaw leader when not living a double life on the outside; there is an innocent young girl, and then a hero who is sent on a mission by his old friend to rescue the girl. In a scene reminiscent to the prologue of "Desert Gold" Kent Wingfield is told about Lucy Bonesteel and sent to save her. Riding and depending on his faithful horse, Spades, Wingfield enters the canyon hideout of Avil Bonesteel and his outlaw gang. On the outside Bonesteel is known as Luce Chaney respectable rancher and cattle dealer. This is a wonderful book, one of my favorites, and I think one anybody would enjoy as well--full of action, passion, and characters you won't soon forget.
