Clint Adams was crossing the Mohave Desert when he came across a woman stumbling along on foot. From a distance she looked like an Indian squaw. Up close, she turned out to be a white gal. And that wasn’t all. She wore a cruel brand on his lower face!

From then on it became a race to cross the desert to safety ... and if they reached it, Clint vowed to solve the mystery of just who the branded woman really was ...
