A Saga of the Southwest, Book V. Book cover shows wear. Good reading copy.
John Cooper Baines -- the Hawk -- now rides forth to battle his deadliest foe. Clad in buckskin, his long rifle at his side, he is the undefeated master of this wild, sprawling Texas land. But a white renegade has sworn allegiance to hell itself in order to destroy the intrepid John Cooper. The villain's treachery falls cruelly against the Dove, beloved Catarina Baines, and traps the Hawk in a dark hour of tragedy -- until the desire for vengeance and justice sets him free to triumph once more.
Wresting his empire from the savage hands of desperadoes and outlaws, John Cooper Baines pits his steely strength against the fortes of evil -- and the raw emotions of rough-riding men and passionate women explode on the untamed American frontier.
