Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: After visiting his late mother's people on the Mescalero reservation, Comanche tribal policeman Daniel Killstraight receives disturbing news: a Chiricahua Apache has brutally murdered a teenage girl in the railroad town of Deming - an a bunch of locals plan on lynching him. Killstraight has no jurisdiction in this territory. He knows nothing about the murdered girl or the accused killer; and he doesn't really care much for Apaches anyway. Yet, still heartbroken over the death of his beloved Rain Shower, he is in no hurry to return home. So he hops on a train to Deming to help a fellow Indian. Once he arrives, Killstraight learns that the man in jail isn't areally an Apache. Francis Groves is an embittered, binge-drinking white man who had lived with the Chiricahuas and whose wife and daughtered were murdered by Mexican scalp hunters. Killstraight sets out to prove Groves innocent - in a town that hates Indians and where he has few allies and many enemies - all while this pervasive thought sits in the back of his mind: What if Groves is really guilty?
