Lost from a wagon train headed west, a 10-year-old boy is saved by an Indian from starving. The Indian, having lost his family and son in a massacre, raises the boy as his own, giving him the name Chad’tu.

Several years later, the Indian dies and Chad’tu is captured trying to steal a gunslinger’s horse. The gunslinger is a well-known gunsmith and soon after decides to teach Chad’tu how to use a pair of Colt .44s and the ways of the white man. Being young and for the swiftness of his Colts, he is talked into becoming sheriff of Tombstone by the articulate Mayor.

Once, on an exploration, Chad’tu is almost shot by Indians, who he quickly befriends by speaking with his Indian tongue. This is when he meets the love of his life, Jaydeen. After they marry, they settle in a large valley in the Black Mountains and start a cattle ranch in Indian Territory.

While herding cattle, he discovers a starving wolf pup abandoned by its mother. With care and love, it grows into a huge grey wolf who they name Track.

They are wondrously happy, until one day Chad’tu returns to find the cabin in shambles and Jaydeen gone, abducted by unknowns. With blood in his eye and killing on his mind, he sets to save his wife. Unaware of what fate awaits him, Chad’tu rides on their trail followed only by his wolf.


  • “This book is chock full of adventure in the Wild West! It starts out with a mystery that needs solving with flashbacks that fill in the events of Chad'tu's unusual life. The author often puts a hook at the end a chapter that made me want to turn the page to see what would happen next.”
