When their stage coach is waylaid by bandits, ten-year-old Dusty Jerrigo and Dr. Grant Farraday find themselves on the business end of a .45. But this is no routine hold-up: word’s gotten out that a doctor is passing through, and rancher Reese Borman is eager for his services. It seems the ruthless Borman is using forced labor to mine gold in a secluded canyon, and he needs someone to keep the enslaved miners fit for work...even if it means kidnapping a kid in the process.
But Dusty isn’t just any kid—he’s a Jerrigo. And when word of the attack reaches Dusty’s father, Will, a former US Marshall, he immediately dispatches his sons Kip and Clay to bring their little brother home. It is a perilous journey, plagued by horse thieves, a lynch mob, crooked lawmen, and Arapahos. But family is family. And the Jerrigo boys will stop at nothing to reunite theirs.
