When Phineas Bellflower, a writer from Brooklyn and late of Chicago, arrives on the stage in Tucson, he unwittingly sets the stage for a series of turns that will leave both the Hunter and Jeff Stryker scratching their heads. Again you can regale while Whitey and Lenny bumble and stumble and come out smelling like a rose. Hog tying Phineas and leaving him laying in the middle of the desert in his underwear and shoes, Lenny and Whitey make off with all of Phineas' gear and luggage, hoping to find the money they know he had with him. But, thrown into the mix are two thugs from the 5th Ward in New York, Spats Melloy and Mr. O'Brien sent to kill Phineas over an expose' he wrote about the 5th Ward boss, Michael J. McManus, Big Mike, who is also in route to Arizona.
The race is now on for the Hunter and Jeff Stryker to get Phineas out of harms way and into the safe haven of Tombstone before either the Sonora Desert, Spats, Mr. O'Brien or Whitey and Lenny catch up to him. The desert is proving to be a large foe for the two thugs from Brooklyn and is slowly taking them apart, leaving them hapless, and helpless on their own. Unprepared and unknowing they arrived in Arizona thinking it a cake walk, when in reality, the desert is proving to be their biggest foe.
Eventually all characters wind up in Tombstone in an altercation that will have you surprised and grinning from ear to ear. The dialogue is fast and fresh as are the characters in this rollicking good yarn. Belly laughs abound as you follow the groups across the desert in search of safety and each other. Come join the Hunter and Stryker as they ply their trade and once again show the compassion and strength they posses.

From the Publisher:
When Historic Cookery first appeared in 1931 it may have been the earliest cookbook of New Mexican foods to be published, with heirloom recipes from the author's own family and others collected from villagers in northern New Mexico. Fabiola Cabeza de Baca Gilbert's cookbook has been credited with the popularization of cooking with chile that led directly to America's love of native New Mexican foods.
In traditional recipes there were no set rules for the preparation of food. The cook was expected to learn the recipes from her relatives. One of the great contributions of Historic Cookery is that for the first time the non-native cook was given exact amounts and measures for the preparation of New Mexican food.
The author gives complete recipes for chile sauces, corn dishes, meats, cheese, eggs, and vegetables as well as salads, soups, breads, desserts, and beverages.
Fabiola Cabeza de Baca Gilbert was born near Las Vegas, New Mexico in 1894. She was a noted educatior, writer, and home economist.
