Blood On the Tracks(1977)
(The eighth book in the Apache series)
A novel by William M James (Terry Harknett, John Harvey and Laurence James)
Cuchillo Oro is riding along the Gila River Trail when he comes to a railroad camp- the butchered bodies of the Chinese workers and their white enslavers cover the construction site. It is southern New Mexico Territory and this is the ghastly work of renegade Apaches, who don't want the railroad on their land. Just moments after Cuchillo arrives, a cavalry patrol rides up and accuses him of leading the Indian attack. Out for revenge, the soldiers decide to tie him to a locomotive and drag the red skin they hate right off his body. He survives, filled with rage for the white man who has taunted and abused his people for years. But now Cuchillo must also deal with John Colt, leader f the renegade Apaches...a warrior every inch as tough as Oro.
