(The fourth book in the McAllister series)
A novel by

When the white men slaughtered Indians, it was called a victory. But when the Indians killed whites, that was a massacre. To be on the safe side, the whites called every Indian a 'hostile'. And when you were a hostile, not even the Stars and Stripes flying over your camp could save you from packs of hunting soldiers.
McAllister had a whole band of Cheyenne on his conscience. On him depended whether they lived or died.
Brevington was a preacher and a soldier - so he fought against the Indians, and he prayed against them too.
Wild Bill Hickok never forgot a debt, and he owed McAllister considerably. When they met, two great legends of the Old West came together. And when they both encountered Brevington, they would add even more to their legends ...
