Enhance your purchase
They are four hired guns who haul freight for a price into the treacherous, untamed wilderness. Having already risked their lives for the Confederacy, now they’re fighting for themselves—and for a stake in the future—on the great frontier. Led by the poker-playing Faro Duval, these soldiers of fortune are about to take the biggest gamble of all: delivering an explosive cargo from Santa Fe to southwestern Utah. Their destination is Devil’s Canyon…and a mountain of gold.
But there’s a wild card in the crew: a man who is one jump ahead of an unsavory past and one piece of silver away from selling them out. In a land of savage outlaws and hostile Utes, with a rattlesnake named Hal Durham in their midst, Duval and his men are running out of time and out of luck…

Faro Duvall must lead five wagons of supplies to a gold strike in Utah. The claim is being kept under wraps by Levi Collins, who came to Santa Fe looking for teamsters with the sand to haul his goods through an unforgiving frontier wilderness filled with hostile Ute Indians, outlaws, and claim jumpers. If they manage to reach their destination, the reward would be beyond their wildest dreams...
