Summary
Wil Chama gained his reputation as a gunman and sought to bury himself as a driver of a salt wagon in Río Tinto, Texas. What Wil never suspected is that he was engaged to work for the Red Devil Salt Works not because of his skill as a muleskinner but precisely because of his reputation as a gunman. This becomes clear to Wil when Randall Kellums, the owner of the Red Devil, tells him he wants Wil to give up his job as a wagoner and instead serve notice on Amos Montoya that his company and his people will no longer have access to the salt deposits at Tinto Flats
Summary
Hoping to shed his bloody past, Wil Chama signs on at the Red Devil Salt Works to cart provisions in and salt out. But the unscrupulous owner, Randall Kellums, actually wants Wil's deadly gunslinging skills to help steal a Mexican rival's mining rights. Wil instead sides with the Mexicans; he tells his story as a memoir, giving this fast-paced shoot-'em-up a hint of somber reflection. -- Description by Kimberly Burton
