The great stage-coach sways and jolts as the horses pound around the bend in the trail.
With great daring Pocomoto, on Goldflash, gradually edges alongside and manages to
stop the Santa Fé run-away.|
The driver has been hit by a bullet which, apparently, came from nowhere. Poco and
Tim Bladen search for the unknown gunman and thus become involved in a hunt for
treasure in the bad lands of the Pecos country.
