It was not surprising that Pocomoto and his partner Tim, having well established themselves in their new Golden Herd Ranch, should now seek to extend their claim. But did they realise the danger they would be running into in laying claim to part of Sno-ta-hay Canyon, sacred territory of the fierce Apache tribesmen ? Already the Indians had been roused to fury against the white men who, greedy for gold, had sought to penetrate the secret of the Canyon.

The old-timer Seb knew well enough how hazardous Poco's undertaking would be - but not even he could forsee its unexpected result.
