When Zeke Stanford strikes gold in the heart of Arizona, he is elated. Now he can provide for his Mary and prove to her parents that he’s not the no-good drifter they think him to be.
But when news gets out around town despite his precautions, this blessing soon threatens to turn into a curse—between the claim-jumpers and the Apache and other threats, he’s soon forced to get his hands dirty with blood rather than dirt.
It’s when his Mary shows up nearly unannounced from Santa Rosa that the stakes really ramp up, and Zeke will have to find a way to keep her safe in this Wild West tale of one man’s struggle to have it all.
