All Pete Belissari want is to sell his string of mustangs and catch up on some sleep.  But first he'll have to outwit a band of Apaches intent on stealing his horses.  And then he'll find himself at odds with, and maybe even attracted to, young Hannah Scott, who is trying to save her orphanage from evil rancher Rafe Malady.

Fate throws Hannah and Pete together and hurls them headlong into a wild ride in this lighhearted, fast-moving Western told in authentic detail.  The pair must summon all of their courage and skill before facing their biggest challenge:  a must-win, backbreaking horse race against the top riders and steeds in the West.  It's a race againt time to save the orphanage -- and themselves --- from Malady and his gunmen.
