Ben Dauber had much to learn about the newspaper business. And about being a man. He found himself in a place and time some would call Heaven, others Hell to learn both. Desert Sun, Red Blood by E. W. Farnsworth is a collection of tales during the time of the Indian wars in the lawless Arizona Territory. Ben Dauber found himself among a rough-and-tumble group of renegade Apaches, range settlers, saloon girls, professional gamblers, seedy lawmen, a hanging judge, gunslingers, desperate thieves and murders, con men, land-grabbing ranchers, ruthless claim jumpers, steely-eyed railroad operatives, dashing cavalry officers and spirited frontier women who knew how to ride, track, and use weapons as well as men. While Dauber gradually traces the secret activities of moneyed railroad interests in the Territory, he learns what it takes to live…and die like a man in the Territory from all around him, including his mentor Judge Richard Hastings, the renegade Apache Durang, and a young frontier girl in buckskin and lace known as Nance, the Bottle Blonde of Albuquerque, the only love of Kit Carson, a dandy and gambler.
