"Cheyenne Gold" written by Max Brand. Published by Dodd, Mead & Company, copyright 1963. This copy is a book club edition.
"Rusty Sabin had mined the ill-omened gold in the Sacred Valley of Cheyenne, a place so holy that even the air was feared by the Indians. Born of white parents, Rusty had been raised by the Cheyennes. To them he was Red Hawk, a leader and a great warrior. But the gold he carried from the valley was to bring terrible ordeals to Rusty and to the tribe. In an attempt to steal a bag of the nuggets, the ruthless frontiers-man Charlie Galway murdered a white friend of Rusty's and escaped unseen. The angry townspeople accused Standing Bull, a Cheyenne war chief, of the crime. When Rusty's pleas for a fair trial were disregarded, he rescued the young chief form a lynch mob, taking him back to the tribe."
"Here is the beginning of a gripping tale about the long, bloody feud between Red Hawk, the white Indian, and the white men who had become his deadly enemies."
