Publisher's Summary

They were not wanted where they came from. They were not welcome anywhere. They were outcasts, rootless and friendless, until luck or destiny threw them together. A former Apache scout shunned by his tribe, an ex-Union Army major, a former Confederate captain, and two army deserters, all forced to band together to stay alive. That is, as long as they could avoid killing each other.Now they were needed, but could they bury their anger and work together long enough to do what they had to do? Could they make it to Mexico to rescue a band of Apaches who had been captured and sold into slavery? It was no easy task, because even if they managed to not kill each other, there were plenty of others eager to do it for them.

This is written in 2000, but it could have been written 100 years ago. That is to say it is a very simple, predictable plot with cookie cutter cut out characters. It could be a satire on so-so writing. It is not terrible, just not above average. Dusty Rhodes and Cormac McCarthy have written the best westerns I have read so far and they have totally different styles.
