"Like many a veteran of the Civil War, Cap McKenna went west to build a new life. Thanks to a fortuitous meeting with J. Stuart Reynolds, owner of the Reynolds Overland Transportation Company, McKenna's homestead in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains was selected as a change station for the horse teams on the run between Denver and Cheyenne. Out riding one day, McKenna comes across an abandoned infant, whom he takes in and cares for until the baby's mother, a Cheyenne woman, appears at his door. Alone and terrified, she wants to find the baby's father. And she needs Cap's help. Cap helps her locate him at the U.S. Cavalry encampment, but Colonel Tom Sully stands defiantly between the father and his family. When the desperate man deserts to be with his wife and child, Sully sends a detail after him. Suddenly Cap finds himself caught in a deadly pursuit--ready to risk all for what he knows is right."-- Provided by publisher.
