Junction Flats DrifterBook - 2007
Drifter Josh Barkley and his aging Kickapoo sidekick, Mike Gray-Eyes, open this genial tale by witnessing a double murder on the trail through Texas. They take the bodies to the nearest town and soon enough find themselves on some mighty slippery ground. A local rancher's daughter sets her demure sights on Josh, who briefly considers fleeing town and the uneasy promise of romantic intrigue but instead agrees to help the sheriff corral the troublesome gang of rustlers. If that weren't headache enough, figure in a Confederate strongbox brimming with $60,000 in gold, a couple of Union spies deeply ensconced in the town, and a shifty saloon owner looking to score big from the coming railroad.
