Devil on the Loose. In the tradition of Louis L'Amour, a love story. A strong, lonely man hiding from enemies while seeking his fortune encounters an inaccessible, fairy-beautiful woman-child in a land beset by outlaws where there is no law but the gun. Encounter the wonderful, real people who populated 1850s Arizona - Captain Ewell, Sylvester Mowry, Great Western, Charles Poston, Tevis, Mose Carson, and Palatine Robinson - as the former dragoon battles Mexican bandits, Apaches and outlaws with wits and brawn. The government would allow no law so the outlaws gathered and the devil was on the loose.
