It's Saturday. Payday. Workers at the railhead prepare for a night of drinking and carousing as the supply train rolls into camp-bringing with it fresh workers, additional soldiers and, most importantly, the chest containing that weeks wages. The train also brings Nathan Ellis-a Texan with his holster hung low and tied at the thigh-looking to deliver a payment of his own.

On the horizon, Goose Face and his band of exiled indians watch the railhead slowly piercing the heart of indian country. He is looking to collect on a debt-and the only currency Goose Face accepts is the white man's scalp.

*Includes a brief photo-history of the Transcontinental Railroad.

About the Author

Richard Jessup (01/01/1925 - 10/27/1982) was born in Savannah, Georgia and died in Nokomis, Florida. He lived in and out of orphanages until age sixteen - when he ran away to join the United States Merchant Marine. In eleven years of seamanship, he claimed he read a book a day and learned to write by typing out the complete text of War and Peace and editing out the errors - he subsequently threw the edited work in the ocean. Jessup was married to Vera in 1944 and had a daughter named Marina. He left the Merchant Marine in 1948 to become a fulltime author. He was at the typewriter ten hours a day.

Jessup's obituary claims he wrote over sixty novels (only confirmed a bibliography of thirty-four). His first novel, The Cunning and the Haunted, was published in 1954 and filmed as The Young Don't Cry in 1957. Three other novels were also adapted to film - The Deadly Duo, Chuka, and The Cincinnati Kid. He sold the movie rights to the 1971 novel Foxway but it was never filmed. Jessup published eleven novels - primarily westerns and spy thrillers - as Richard Telfair. His last novel, Threat, was published in 1981.
