Jace Kennedy is aboard a stagecoach with a gambler, two drummers, a dude, a rancher and a girl- Mary, but his eye is not on her but on the trunk said to hold $40,000 in gold. The holdup he plans is deferred by an Indian raid- and again when they are all stranded at a stage station with the Apaches lying in wait. Kennedy volunteers to go for help- the gold to be his if he survives to collect it. But the dangers are greater and the rewards something other than he had in mind. A new and fresh touch here.
