Some brief overview of book
MOUNTAIN FOLKS Fargo caught between a rock and a hard place. The Texas Rangers have him bottled up and no way out. If he kills a Texas Ranger, they will follow him to the ends of the earth and beyond if necessary.
Fargo's thoughts do not include jail which would happen because he was running guns and ammunition to Villa in Mexico. He couldn't out run the Rangers and he wasn't going to wind up in Huntsville or some Federal prison. He'd rather take a bullet.
There are many things you can say about Fargo, but he isn't afraid of death. It's like he and Death ride together, sleep,eat and fight together...you know two peas in a pod. When you live your life as a mercenary you never know which bullet is the kill shot.
In this adventure he's dealing with the Canfields of the Allegheny Mountains, these are mountain folk, very clanish and some might say looking at them there might be some inbreeding amongst them. Well, this is family against cattle ranchers who want the mountain they are living on for their cattle, evidently there's a war brewing and these cattle ranchers figure they can make money the fatter their cattle are. So they want to annihilate the Canfields.
A Ranger was murdered by a Canfield a n d the Rangers want him. So they make a deal with Fargo to get Jess Canfield, the shooter and they'll forget about charging Fargo with gun running. It's a great adventure can't say it's really western because is slowly becoming civilized and the mercenaries are slowly thinning out.
The Civil Wars in Mexico, South America aren't as frequent as they were. That type of life is kinda calming down, but not for long. Fargo and men like him will always be around to hire their guns to the highest payoff.
