The young Apache war chief Jolsanny led fifteen Nedtahe braves on a raid to decimate Fort Lancaster. On the way back to Ojo Caliente, the raiders pretty much wiped the Mexican town of San Basilio off the map, leaving its people dead and its priest nailed to the door of his own church.
General George Washington Hunter called for Lieutenant Matthew Stryker, and his orders were simple. “Take your misfits and go after Jolsanny. Get those Apaches back on the reservation, or kill them all.”
Now Stryker’s Misfits must play Jolsanny’s raiders at their own game … and losing is not an option!
