It's a romance...a vendetta...a war!
The warped revenge of an ageing cowboy brings the U.S. and Mexico to the brink of war. How it happened is intrigueing, often thrilling, sometimes revulsive and how the problem was solved is a stunning surprise! The remarkable old cowboy named Lonesome is an admirable character in spite of his occasional lapses into his primitive vendetta against the "coyotes" who lead drug-carrying "mules" across the Rio Grande. Just before the "fit hits the shan", he stumbles into the greatest romance of his life and the recently retired school teacher who falls in love with him is horrified when she discovers the real reason for his spending occasional nights alone on horseback out on the desert of the Big Bend Park of south Texas.
It'll keep you wondering what's gonna happen next...and WHY!
