Imagine the plight of the American Indian of the west right after Custer's last stand. The army and the government is pledged to reek revenge against the noble redman.
One tiny tribe of Indians who have always hidden from the whitemen's encroachment realize that the destruction of their way of life and maybe even their lives are imminent. This small tribe of Indian spiritualist ask for the aid of one crusty, old miner and that is when the excitement begins.
This exciting book has the action of Louis L'Amour novel and the humor of a Mark Twain tale all rolled together. The Indians outfox the U.S. Army by pretending to be a royal Bulgarian tour of the American west.
The prospector knows that no one out west knows what a Bulgarian looks like and by using Indian gold, band uniforms from Denver, bellboy uniforms, lots of spit and polish, and downright good acting, the Indians convince western America that this tribe is Bulgarian. The tribal warriors are transformed into a tiny army of body guards escorting Count Frederick Von Grumpa across the west.
There is lots of help given to the prospector and Indians by such characters as a buxom red headed hooker, a wiley exslave, a European educated French Indian, an exconfederate sea captain, and the prospectors favorite old mule named Jake.
The whole tribe parades across western America to the west coast where a ship will be waiting to take the tribe to land in Mexico that was bought with the Indian gold.
