AGAINST THE VIOLENT BACKGROUND OF THE CIVIL WAR, A MIGHTY AMERICAN FAMILY MEETS ITS DESTINY
Quint Kershaw -- legendary mountain man, fighter, and lover -- is called from the comforts of the land he loves to fight for the Union under Kit Carson. His mission is to help preserve New Mexico from the Confederate onslaught in a tempestuous time that will test the passions of both men and women.
His sons, David and Francisco, turn deadly rivals for the love of a shrewd and beautiful woman. His daughte, Guadalupe, yearns deeply for the one man she can never have. And Quint himself once again comes face-to-face with golden-haired Jean Calhoun, the woman he could never get out of his mind, now suddenly available and as ravishing as ever.
