But his friend Thomas O'Malley convinces Andy to go farther into the range to Mogollon, a mining burg. On the way, Apaches wound Andy and kill O'Malley. Andy stumbles into Mogollon, but is soon seized by Apaches. And their leader, who is seeking revenge for his brother's death, uses Andy to lure the rest of the Colton brothers . . .
