The sun, a burning orb that seared the Texan landscape and everything that crossed its surface, followed Mark Kirkham’s aimless ride across the featureless plain. There was little purposeful direction in his travelling. Two days ago his poke had been wiped out in a poker game in Abilene. Broke, but not totally discouraged, he had saddled his horse, packed his warbag and headed out for new horizons. Somewhere, there would be a job waiting for him. All he had to do was to find it.
