Living at the fringes of the U.S. Army, the Frontier, and themselves, the garrison at Fort Clendennon hunkers down with a rag-tag group of travellers and prepares for an Indian onslaught.

Can the Army’s most dishonorable, untrustworthy, and insubordinate group of soldiers—too rotten to depend on but not quite bad enough to discharge—band together against the common threat?

And will the notorious gunfighter—known only as Chuka—follow his gut and keep on passing through or will he unholster his six-guns to go against the very odds that had saved his skin countless times before?

This book is part of the Richard Jessup Rejuvenation Project. We will be republishing all of Jessup's books that we can, including those written under his pseudonym Richard Telfair. We aim to have nearly his entire body of work back in print by 2015.
