California Bound by Frank Kelso


In a Union POW camp, Jeb & Zach dreamed of finding California Gold, but the road West leads Jeb past his sister's home in Texas. He finds her and her family dead in the ranch's smoldering ruins.
A border war rages along the Rio near Eagle Pass with cattle rustled and ranches burned.
Innocents are killed or kidnapped. Jeb’s niece, Becky, is missing.
The Cavalry officer said, “The Mexican bandit, Cortina, has an adobe-walled fort in Mexico.
My cavalry company couldn’t take it without artillery. What chance do two men have?”
Jeb and Zach plan to carry a case of dynamite to Cortina’s fort in the night.
Zach will sneak Becky away before Jeb blows-up the fort with the bandits in it.
What could go wrong?

California Bound is gritty, tough and ruthless – the sort of Clint Eastwood style of action in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly . . .
