Synopsis: Laughable experiences with old gates, coyotes, badgers, spiders, javalinas and a large Diamondback Rattler as Indian friends and neighbors guided George through comical mishaps; windmill falling, thrown from his horse and deadly murky sand pits along the Gila River.

Born in Arizona but raised on the east coast. His Apache father taught his son the value of inner peace. His rodeo queen mother involved in a "declared fatal accident" while working for the DEA. George accepted his dad's death but not his mother's. He could feel the difference.

With successful investments, George returned to Arizona, bought what most say a worthless desert ranch and a no count horse. The abandoned ranch had become a drug storage and exchange site. The DEA was present but the Pima Indian Police were not so sure if that helped.

George with his four-wheel drive saved an Indian family during a raging flood, which endeared him to tribal leaders, police and Indian families. Bapchule opened George's spiritual eyes.

With assistance from friends, marksmen, cowboys and the Pima Indian police, what was thought lost was found. Evil found fate in the Arizona desert and George with "Chupa Rosa" rode happily into the Arizona sunset.
