Disappearance of Lucinda
|Author:||de la Garza, Phyllis|
|Genre:||The Old West; Westerns|
A dead horse, a missing woman—"another Indian depredation", it was called. Luther McCane knew his older sister, Lucinda, had not fallen into the hands of Indians. But proving it was something else.
Does Luther know what happened to Lucinda? Does anyone? His adversary, El Cajon, is not a man to mess with. Luther, a greedy an unprincipled horse-abuser who hurts people to cover up his crimes, has finally met his match in the cool and competent Mexican-Indian.
El Cajon loved Lucinda and is committed to civilized behavior. A series of punishing adventures awaits Luther, who, unprincipled to the last, salts a mine to give it the appearance of a productive gold mine and commits a murder for which El Cajon is blamed.
This is the sixteenth novel from de la Garza, whose interest and knowledge of horses, the Old West, and the history of Arizona make her a much sought-after radio interviewee and speaker.
