A hard-riding cowboy teams up with a stubborn farm girl to save her family's freight business in this adventure from a master storyteller of the West. When her brother finds himself locked in a vicious battle with corrupt kingpin Craig Armin for control of the freight business in a silver town called Piute, Celia Wallace sells the family farm and goes west to help him. She's just short of her destination when bandits attack her stagecoach, pressing a pistol to Celia and making her hand over every cent she has. She's ruined-but she'll fight to get her revenge. Meanwhile, Armin's nephew Cole, who knows nothing about his uncle's underhanded dealings, has come to Piute looking for a job running one of his uncle's mule trains. But he will find a cause instead: helping Celia search for her stolen money, betraying his own family to do what's right. Dead Freight for Piute is a hard-hitting, authentic western about the brave men and women who had the true grit to stand up to evil, greedy men in a land where the only law was the law of the gun.
