A Red Ryan Western
If anyone knows the road to purgatory, it's Red Ryan. As a stagecoach guard, he's faced holdups, ambushes, and all-out attacks from every kill-crazy outlaw, Indian, and prairie rat. But even he is reluctant to ride shotgun with driver Buttons Muldoon on a stage bound from Fort Concho, Texas, to Fort Bliss. Word has it the Apaches are on the warpath, led by the vicious war chief Ilesh, which means "Lord of the Earth." And this lord means business, as in slaughtering every Texan from here to El Paso. Red wants to postpone the stage. But an army major's beautiful but stubborn wife insists they leave - or she'll go it alone.
