After the gun battle at the Anaya hacienda in Corrales, New Mexico, the fight where Rafe’s beloved Chiwiwi was killed, the saga of Rafael Ortega de Estrada continues. Rafe must risk returning to Torreón, Mexico, to rescue his mother and sister from the hacienda owned by don Bernardo Reyes. It was his duty to protect his family, but he ran when he shot don Bernardo for raping his younger sister, and they suffered. The guilt in his heart burns with rage – a rage that will see his mother and sister safe, but an unbearable surprise awaits him at the hacienda. American expansion pushes westward from Texas to New Mexico after the territory is incorporated into the United States, but the newcomers are bringing their prejudices. They perceive Native Americans as savages and Hispanics as inferior. Cattle rancher, John B. Sutton, heads for New Mexico after Texas begins charging for free grazing, settling in San Marcial, New Mexico. The peaceful residents of San Marcial are no match for Sutton’s well-heeled cowboys. Rafe finds himself in the center, between the newcomers and the Spanish settlers, and only guns and courage can bring peace to the valley. Once again, Robert J. Alvarado brings his unique Hispanic perspective to this continuing saga set in the American Southwest. His stories transport the reader to a time and place where history and fiction collide. The material in this book is for mature audiences only and contains graphic content and language. It is intended for readers aged 18 and older.
