This novel traces the West through three generations of Chapmans from the ending of the great American cowboy of the late 1800s through the hellish aftermath of the Korean War. Patriarch F.E. Chapman learned from legendary gunfighter, Ab Quezada, and passed the lessons through son, Martin, to grandson, Pete. From deserted mining towns of the New Mexico Territory and stolen Confederate treasure hidden in El Malpais to the murderous Ciudad Ju rez streets and violent border wars, three generations of the Chapman family struggle to keep their way of life. This is a story of brave women, a sociopathic killer, outlaws living past their time, and men who have the grit to take on the rugged rangeland of the Pecos and Rio Grande valleys.
