The Shadow in Renegade Basin
A Western TrioLarge Print - 2001
This trio of short novels opens with Plunder Trail, the story of a wagon train at a fork on the Oregon Trail. Unable to agree on which trail to take, the train splits in two. In The Brand of Penasco, the woman known as Senorita Scorpion is on the trail of her rustled cattle when she finds herself without her horse in the border town of Oro Peso -- and is offered a job to earn the money for another horse. The Shadow in Renegade Basin is probably a mineral deposit, but it looks just like blood. Here the Shane brothers have come with their ailing mother to build a homestead, ignoring the curse placed on the tragic land . . .
