A Spur Award-winning AuthorJess Paddock was the only man in Fort Kearny who knew what was going on. As a former major in the Confederate Army he'd fought with the best of them, and his knowledge of Indian warfare was second to none. There was no doubt in Paddock's mind that out in the frozen Wyoming Hills the Sioux had laid a diabolical trap. Yet a trio of hot-headed officers out for glory insisted on snatching the bait.Available only in Western 8.
