Orphan Train by J. R. Roberts

There's not much one man can do against a dozen outlaws--unless that one man is the Gunsmith. When Clint Adams runs across a gang of Comancheros ambushing a small wagon train, he heads for cover and sets up a hail of lead that makes the bushwhackers think they're outgunned.

When the smoke clears and the outlaws turn tail, Clint finds himself saddled with a responsibility he never wanted. The convoy he saved is a wagon train of twenty children--orphans setting out for a new life in California--and his conscience won't let him abandon them. Thanks to his sense of duty, Clint's got an outlaw gang on his trail and, just maybe, a jail term for kidnapping...if he lives long enough!
