Joe Phoebe and his partner, Ira Croton, ride boldly into the forbidding hill country of central Texas for two reasons: first, to take a job bullwhacking for Mills' Freight and Livery in Dead Apache Springs; and second, on the outside chance that someone might recognize Joe, or that he might run into something that could trigger his memory, which has been wiped

Overview

Joe Phoebe and his partner, Ira Croton, ride boldly into the forbidding hill country of central Texas for two reasons: first, to take a job bullwhacking for Mills' Freight and Livery in Dead Apache Springs; and second, on the outside chance that someone might recognize Joe, or that he might run into something that could trigger his memory, which has been wiped out by a minié ball at Appomattox.

Instead, they ride into a tangled conspiracy of cold-blooded murder, barn burnings, cattle rustling, kidnapping, and buried gold. When a fragment of Joe's memory does return, the recollection stuns him: prior to the war, he had ridden with a band of outlaws that had robbed the bank in nearby Abbottville.

As rugged as the country in which the story is set, so is the blazing action as a hard-nosed cowpoke battles a cattle baron who will stop at nothing to drive out smaller ranchers in a land grab the size of Texas, a struggle that ends in an unexpected and bizarre twist of events.
