A quiet prospector, Yancey, finds bonanza gold directly under a hospital run by nuns in a Colorado mining town. Soon, every ruthless operator in town is conniving to oust the nuns from their property and shut down the hospital. There is only Yancey and the sisters to resist the onslaught, but Yancey is a man to be reckoned with, and the nuns have their own remarkable strengths. And they have courage in the face of overwhelming adversity.

About the Author
I've published over seventy novels, most of them dealing with the American West. I've been published by Doubleday, M. Evans, Bantam, Ballantine, Forge, Fawcett, Pinnacle, Walker and Company, Sunstone Press, and Berkley. I've written fur-trade novels, including my Skye's West series, and numerous novels about western mining. I've won six Spur Awards from Western Writers of America, which at this writing is more than any other living author. I've also written several mysteries under a pseudonym, Axel Brand. These are set in the 1940s and feature Lieutenant Joe Sonntag of the Milwaukee Police Department. I became a novelist late in life, after years as a newsman and book editor.
