Lucy Henderson was a professional Union spy, posing as a Confederate secret agent. Arriving in El Paso by stagecoach she met the small but sturdy group of sympathizers with whom she was to work. A turgid tale of intrigue and carnage follows, softened by the love which grows between Lucy and the wiry Alabamian who eventually dies in her arms after a brave stand at Mimbres Springs against the Apaches. The West at its Wildest in Civil War days...duplicity and desertion...courage and catastrophe -- for a male market. Virile.
