"One of the best stories of the plains ever written". A story of deep heart interest in which mystery, intrigue, and thrilling adventure commingle in the inimitably fascinating Parrish way!

Jack Keith, a typical border plainsman, while riding along the Santa Fe trail, notices a team hitched to a wagon going at full gallop, pursued by men on ponies. When Keith reaches the wagon the raiders have massacred two men, shot the horses and departed. Keith reaches Corson City and is arrested and charged with murdering the two travelers. His accuser is given as Black Bart, a notorious ruffian. Keith and a negro prisoner escape from jail, wander across the sand desert, and discover a young lady in a lonely cabin. From this on, Keith, Black Bart, Hope Waite and Christie Maclaire are intimately connected with the entire story, and many thrilling scenes are gone through. Dr. Fairbain, a frontier doctor, also plays a prominent part in the story and his gruff manner of speech and frontier mannerisms cover a heart of gold. Illustrated.
