Abstract:
Adam Rait drifted after a fire took the lives of both his parents... and then the War Between the States came along and he had joined the Confederate cavalry. Three years later, he was a wounded captain in a Georgia hospital. Limping, frustrated, and haunted by the recollection of men who had died under his command, seemingly for no purpose, he wanted only one thing from the Army -- out. He drifted down to Huntsville, Texas, where he found a job as a buyer of supplies for a freighting outfit. Rait's future changed abruptly when Kurt Hanover hired him to serve as wagon boss for a freight outfit, with a cargo of new rifles and ammunition bound for a Confederate encampment to be exchanged for $40,000 in gold. Against Rait's advice, Hanover invited Angela de Acera and her brother to join the train when he came upon their overturned carriage. A few days later, Hanover was murdered and Rait was left with a fortune in rifles. Then he heard the war had ended at Appomattox. Now several parties wanted his cargo. He must choose a buyer and keep the munitions train safe from marauding Indians and roving bands of renegades. But teamsters were not soldiers and Adam Rait no longer wanted to be involved in any military campaign.
