Colorado, 1870. When James Laroche, buffalo soldier and sometimes bounty hunter, rides into Nelson City, Clear Creek County, he’s offered a job he doesn’t particularly want. Rancher Willis Kenny asks him to help catch a gang of cattle thieves who’ve been targeting his place, Gold Acres Corral.
When Laroche refuses, Kenny calls the buffalo soldier a coward, and the town holds its breath to see the outcome.
They want to find out whether Kenny will regret his words, or whether James Laroche is really a gun for hire.
Also in town is Mack Satterfield, cardsharp and conman, who gets involved with a couple of soiled doves, Berita and Suanne, who are liable to bring him – and Laroche – plenty of trouble.
A story of action, bravery, humour and double-crosses!
