The Blurb - During 3 years in a Union POW camp, Jeb and Zach dreamed of California’s Gold fields - but the road to California leads through Texas, where Jeb plans to visit his sister.
But a cross-border war rages along the Rio Grande near Eagle Pass TX …Cattle rustled … Ranches burned … Innocents killed or kidnapped.
The Cortiña bandoleros are raiding Texas. And after killing her family, Cortina kidnaps 14 year-old Rebecca - Jeb’s niece!
Cortiña’s hideout is an adobe-walled fort. A Cavalry Company couldn’t take it without artillery. How can two men attack it and expect to walk away?
The Law won’t … And the US Cavalry can’t cross the Rio … so can Jeb and Zach wade the Rio Bravo to rescue a stolen girl?
I really enjoyed this book although I thought it was a little wordy in places. The plot is a busy one, but captivating. The dialogue raises a smile, it was definitely written as spoken. There was no posturing evident, just good western action.
