(From the publisher):
In the spring of 1874 the Ranger companies that protect settlers against Indian raids and outlaw bands are being reorganized, and David "Rusty" Shannon is the most sought-after veteran for re-enlistment.
But Shannon has new goals for his life: he is in love with Josie Monahan, daughter of the family that adopted him, and he intends to marry Josie and take her to his farm on the Colorado River. Rusty also feels affection and responsibility for Andy Pickard, a headstrong teenager he rescued from captivity among the Comanche - just as Rusty himself was rescued as a red-haired boy decades before.
Then an unspeakable tragedy changes Rusty's plans for a quiet farmer's life, and alters his peace-loving character. Bent on revenge, Rusty begins a relentless pursuit of the man he believes is responsible for ruining his life.
But the trail Rusty is following may be leading him to the wrong man...
