(From the publisher):
There's a bloody war brewing between money-hungry gold diggers and the fierce San Carlos Apaches over the most desirable element in nature - water. Deputy U.S. Marshal Custis Long is assigned to settle this situation in the deadliest part of Arizona - Canyon City. But he's not alone. He's getting a little help from an unlikely lot, including an old fogy named Gassy, a temperamental mule named Ugly, and a striking Apache woman, Donita Ramirez. Longarm soon discovers that this dispute is far more complex than even he imagined. He'll just have to give both sides a bigger problem than their precious water - and it will be whether or not they're the next to face down his smoking derringer.
