West with the Missouri
by CLIFF FARRELL
St. Louis was ablaze with glittering lights when Britt Cahill, a hunted man, walked down the stage plank of the steamboat Aurora. Three years ago he had been the envied young captain and owner of the finest, fastest new steamboat in the river service —when disaster from an unknown hand shat¬tered his career overnight, and he found himself a pauper, under suspicion of arson, theft and murder. Fleeing the town, he had endured three years of bitter, lonely exile, searching the far West for Zack Richards, the one man who could be forced — at gunpoint, if necessary—to clear Britt Cahill's name.
Now Cahill was taking his life into his hands by reappearing in St. Louis. But he had to find Ann Richards, who knew where her father was hiding out, somewhere in the wild Indian country, with a fortune in gold nearby. In a few hours the Dakota Queen would weigh anchor for Fort Buford, deep in the territory of the rampaging Sioux. She would be piloted by Mead Jarrett, gambler and ruthless gunman. And among her passengers would be the beautiful Sherry Dean, a poker-play¬ing music-hall singer, possibly Cahill's only friend on board; Ann Richards, bearing a map showing the location of her father's gold; Philip DeWitt Howe, a mysterious young doctor from the East; Leila Ormsby, Cahill's attractive but malicious old flame; and Britt Cahill himself, bent on vengeance, his life in constant danger.
Out of a turmoil of intrigue, gun-fighting and Indian attack Cahill manages to win through to vindication, climaxing a swift, staccato tale of the wide-open Missouri country, a story as unexpected and turbulent as the great river itself.
Published serially in Collier's magazine under the title "Rawhide River."
