In this Ralph Compton western, the most wanted man in the West isn’t an outlaw. But he’s still worth $30,000 dead or alive…

An inexperienced cowpuncher with a solid work ethic, Dusty Hannah has earned the respect of his boss. Entrusted with $30,000, he has been charged to deliver the cattle rancher’s gold across Texas’s Red River—by way of Indian Territory, where the Apaches still reign.
 
But the Apaches are the least of his concerns once word of the money reaches the ears of every desperado in the Southwest. Saddled with the gold, and suddenly responsible for protecting a father and daughter lost in hostile country, Dusty has to keep his wits about him if he hopes to see the trail’s end.
