By Owen G. Irons
John Baldwin Hawkins used to be a quiet, softspoken gentleman from Maryland while his father, Lucius, got here to take him domestic to the Arizona Territory. Home!
John hated and feared the land whilst he observed it. solar parched, arid, adversarial land, it mocked at John's softness. His half-brother, Clay, sneering at John, didn't wish to percentage what he thought of his birthright with him. To Clay, John was once a trespasser, an intruder in his territory.
One evening presently when they had arrived in Arizona they have been without notice ambushed. Lucius was once murdered, and John used to be separated from Clay and Bull Travers, Lucius's long-time good friend and partner.
After narrowly escaping dying by the hands of an Apache courageous, John ﬁnds himself by myself and defenseless in as adverse a land as God created. Wounded, John needs to fend for himself, until eventually he meets an Indian who's keen to befriend him.
Events stream speedy for John Hawkins as he's stuck up within the lives and issues of the Indians, within the curse of hidden Spanish treasure, and with slavers who prey at the Indians.
Captured and bought into slavery himself, John devises a plan—one in which he wins the belief and appreciate of the Navajos and Apaches and the terror of the predatory white males, turning into the mythical Johnny Hawk.
