(From the publisher):
Down in the driest parts of the southwest, gals are scarcer than water - and some men, crazy from lust and the scorching sun, have sent away for mail-order brides. But when the womenfolk never show, these hombres want answers. Some claim the Mormons are kidnapping the ladies for their polygamous beds. Others say it's the Turks. So they hire on gunslinger Custis Long to do what he does second-best: skirt chasing.
After making his way up the Old Spanish Trail and snooping around some, he learns that this time, it's the women who're in the know - Mormon girls, squaw sisters, a Spanish outlaw - all willing to give Longarm his answers. That is, in return for the French lessons that have made him famous clear across the Old West...
