A chance to live.
A promise of glory.
A time for revenge.
After graduating from West Point Military Academy, Mississippi-born Sam Lockwood was posted to far-away Arizona Territory, where he soon grew to love the hostile desert known as Apacheria.
But the Civil War dragged him back to Mississippi, where he experienced all the horrors of a savage conflict, including the hell-on-earth that was the Union prison-camp known as the Rat Hole. It was only through a strange twist of Fate that he was able to return to his beloved Apacheria.
And there, beneath a buzzard-filled sky, he would also settle a long-standing debt.
