The old man known as “The Dutchman” is the only person who can safely free the teenage girl, Maggie Buckner, from the clutches of her sinister captor, Alvin Harding.  Outnumbered eight to one, he sits atop the pale blue grulla, perched on a bench near Savage Peak, watching the outlaws as they exit the pass north of Devil’s Gate and ride out onto the open prairie.  He adjusts the sights on his Remington No. 1 Rifle and waits as the first rider comes into range.  When he stops shooting, three of the captors lay dead. 
     After striking the first deadly blows as her paladin, The Dutchman mounts and trails the group across South Pass through the unpredictable Wyoming springtime weather, like the fourth horseman of the apocalypse – Death...…and surely Hell follows with him.
