Rem McAllister took the task reluctantly. He used to be to steer a military mule-train encumbered with gold around the barren region from Mesquite Springs - and he knew that with Clancy and the ruthless Franchon Gang at the rampage, and Gaton and his Apaches out for white scalps, there wasn't a lot likelihood of its getting through.
So while the mule-train was once bushwhacked, the military escort massacred, the gold stolen and he himself wounded, McAllister wasn't particularly shocked.
Just solid and mad. And out for bullet-fast revenge.
