Few will survive...
In the days when the emigrant wagons rumbled constantly through the small town of Independence, Peter Leeds was the best-known scout on the Santa Fe trail.
His services were always in demand to guide settlers across the Indian-infested country that lay between them and the land of promise of which they dreamed.
Tough as rawhide, the scout had faced the dangers of the trail a thousand times over.
But perhaps his most exciting adventure was one that he began at sun-up as he headed west with a big train of thirty heavily laden wagons, two hundred head of cattle, and, most important of all, a golden-haired girl that would plague his heart.
The days are hot and unforgiving and the nights are full of constant threats from wolves and, even worse, vengeful Indians.
The odds are most definitely stacked against Rawhide and it soon becomes unclear as to whether he will be able to lead the trail of wagons safely to Santa Fe.
With tensions rising between the ...

Later, he ran across a cowboy called Skeeter on a cattle drive. They met again in a saloon and Skeeter asked him to help drive a herd of horses. Jack didn't know they were stolen. He was arrested, went to jail. During his trial, he broke out of the courthouse with another inmate, who shot a ...

Bus was empty except for about seven others including the driver. We'd been going for about six hours now on roads that made the bus buck like an unbroken horse and you could hear the engine from a mile off. Every few minutes we'd go up in the air a few inches and come crashing back down. I didn't dare stand though, I was torn between if it was more suspicious to stretch my legs like I was flexing up for something or remain seated like I was waiting for something.
My eyes flickered to the roller bag situated above me in the overhead compartment. Mine was the battered, shitty, stained black roller bag missing its two front wheels. Mine was the one full of bags full of gold. Gold pulled straight out of the ruins of Charlottesville by my friends. Of course, they weren't my friends anymore...
The saga begins in 1858 in New Mexico Territory, ten years before the events recorded in Matt Cutugno's first Western, The Godless Men. Two boys, one from Kansas and one from Missouri, make their way through the wild country as pony riders for the mail service. At the same time, a young woman from China holds a powerful man responsible for the death of her father.
Law and order was slow to come to the Territory. Justice slower still. There were settlers and squatters, commerce and industry, sheriffs and outlaws amidst unfolding Manifest Destiny.
Few knew that a Civil War was coming.
Matt Cutugno is the author of four novels and eleven plays that have been produced in New York, Los Angeles and across the country. He has been a frequent contributor to Stay Thirsty Magazine for the past nine years. He is from New York and currently lives in California.

The vaulted blue sky with its wispy white clouds was a misleading sign. Every seasoned inhabitant of Blazes, Texas knew that the dew on the morning grass would soon turn into steamy vapor. The welcoming heavens would turn to a brazen dome lorded over by the merciless sun.
Amidst the struggle for life and profit, there was one mysterious haven. It was the homesteads of two newlywed couples. The two brides named Rosa Lee and Mattie were singing a happy hymn while bathing in the shallow stream that flowed between their new two-story log cabin homes in the grassy valley.
A diamondback rattlesnake was sunning itself on a flat topped boulder. The venomous pit viper was coiled up like a deceiving length of rope. But this deadly noose had fangs and a very short fuse. The fearful beast saw the two ladies coming closer, so it threatened death with its fatal tail rattle.
Rosa Lee almost stepped on the Biblical enemy of all women. Mattie instinctively screamed with all of her ...
