Another great story of the settlement of the west in the late 1800's. Clint, Virgil and Elizabeth are occupied with holding onto the Spur while also aiding the army and their Indian kin. Elizabeth has her own agenda of helping whenever she can, especially with the Mexican poor. She gets more and more involved in politics and the art of the "deal" which stands her in good stead when Clint needs it at the end of the story. Very entertaining.
