Three Gringos Ride Into Mexico

April 4, 2016
   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."

Daily Whip Out: "Trouble On The Back Trail"

   Both Mickey and the Apache Kid saw omens where others simply saw campfire visitors.

   The problem with seeing omens and signs is that they tend to intrude everywhere, even in the clouds. Especially in the clouds.

Daily Whip Out: "Big Bear Cloud"

   Everyone at San Carlos knows Big Bear practices bad medicine and to see his visage in the clouds is a very bad sign. But to see Big Bear AND the woman you love in the same cloud troubles even the most level-headed of warriors.
