Wildon Boothe is as innocent as a newborn babe when he heads out to the Arizona frontier. The band-playing military pomp of West Point did nothing to prepare the young shavetail for the man-killing wasteland of Apache Mesa. But if the Army sends him to Hell itself, young Lieutenant Boothe is willing to serve. Life on the range isn't exactly going to be easy on his beautiful young wife, either. They swore to stay married until death did them part, but with a marauding gang of renegade bandidos on the loose, the couple may be split up sooner than either of them expected.
