Three gringos ride into Mexico: Mickey Free, Tom Horn and Jim Young. Like most Americans, they are brash and loud and prone to violence. What could possibly go wrong?
Looking through field glasses, Tom Horn tries to ID their pursuers. "From this distance, I can't tell if they're Mexican Rurales or Mexican bandidos. Either way, we've got problems."
Both Mickey and the Apache Kid saw omens where others simply saw campfire visitors.
"The first and great commandment is, Don't let them scare you."
