He had stopped last night in the Gunsight Hills, making dry camp because others had reached the water hole before him and he preferred to avoid other travelers.

LAST STAND
AT PAPAGO WELLS


Logan Cates knew the many ways the Arizona desert could kill a man.  He had ridden the sunblasted dunes, tracked the Apache over barren lava beds, sheltered in the dry washes of this forbidding land.  Above all, he knew a man needed water to survive.  Cates rode to Papago Wells a few miles ahead of an Apache war party led by the vicious Churupati.  There he met a dozen desert wanderers whom chance had led to the only water between Yuma and hell.  There they came under siege by the Indians.  And there they would make their stand - with little hope of living beyond the next day and only a hard man named Logan Cates to show them how to conquer their true enemy: fear.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
