Frank Kelsoabout this book: First came Butch and Sundance … then Gus and Call … now it's Jeb and Zach as 2 buddies released from a Yankee POW camp after the Civil War. They meander through Texas to visit Jeb's sister before riding west to find their fortune in California's gold fields. Amid rumors, they find a border war rages along the Rio Grande with each side pointing fingers at the other.
Jeb finds his sister's ranch in flames, her and her family dead, their cattle rustled, and his niece kidnapped. Texas Lawmen refused to cross the border. The Cavalry at Fort Duncan cannot cross the border either. The Cavalry warns Cortina uses an adobe walled fort … our cavalry couldn't take it without artillery … what can 2 men do against it?
A young widow tends Jeb in healing after a shoot-out with Cortina's gang. Both men take a shine to the bold and sassy lady.
"Aww, man. After all the time we been together, are we gonna fight over a woman," Zach said.
"No fight needed," Jeb said. "She's gonna decide, then get us think it was our idea."
"She always does," Zach replied.
Jeb and Zach may have lost the war, but not their fighting spirit. The 2 men wade the Rio Bravo to bring home Jeb's niece … doing whatever it takes.
