Plot Overview

Convicted of horse-stealing, Flint McCullough receives from Christopher Hale a sentence of 20 lashes to be followed by banishment from the wagon train. These lashes on his back then serve McCullough as a "badge of dishonor" as he infiltrates a criminal gang headed by a man known only as Angel de Muerte.
