(From the publisher):
AT FORT VOLNEY THE SOLDIERS WEAR BLUE, THE INDIANS WEAR WARPAINT, AND THE WOMEN WEAR YOU OUT!
Having duly unloaded a worthless goldmine on one of San Francisco's most prominent citizens, Faro Blake needed a promising spot to lay low and spend some time and money. The Army wasn't exactly what he had in mind.
But a loaded roulette wheel and an unfortunate set of circumstances landed Faro in the Fort Volney stockade, looking at four walls and a three-year hitch - just as the Leatherfoot Indian tribe was getting ornery, their chief was getting back from Oxford, and the major's sumptuous wife was getting more than a little restless... it took a few clever dodges and some between-the-sheets heroism to make his military career a success. But whoever said Faro Blake wasn't a patriot?
