Ex-marshal, Jake Harwood, struggles with love and death after rescuing New Orleans beauty, Jessica Raymond, from an overturned stagecoach.

Jake Harwood, a burned-out former marshal, whose wife left him, rides west on his way to California. In the New Mexico desert, he rescues seductive Jessica Raymond, the sole survivor, half-buried beneath the stage. She is from New Orleans where she escaped from Blackie Le Font, a shrewd gambler, who killed her father.
Jessica talks Jake into taking her to California. Along the way, Maco, a fierce Chiricahua Apache, named after Geronimo's grandfather, captures them. He has already stolen Susan Blackhawk, a beautiful half-Cheyenne, half-French maiden, from the Camanches. Apaches, Mexicans, and Comanches fight over the women and capture them for their own. Jake, Blackie, and Maco, in turn, try to free them, but are badly wounded.
Which man will recover to end up with Jessica or Susan Blackhawk? Will Jake ever make it to California?

Sounds interesting. What do you prescribe for this? I choose Xanax.
