El Paso, Texas
April 30, 1889
Eli and the others in his rescue party have reached
the border town of El Paso, Texas in the predawn
hours of April 30, 1889.
Upon arrival, Martinez sends his four vaqueros to scout
the herd of Longhorns before daylight. If all goes well,
they plan to take the Delgado cattle back with them.
Eli and the others ride west with Martinez, to the place
where his sister, Rosa is being held captive.
As they hunker down across the river from the hacienda,
they make their final plans to cross the Rio Grande into
Mexico early the next morning - for the daring rescue of
Rosa Maria Delgado.
With a good plan of attack, a little luck and a lot of guts,
they'll all come out of the raid on Mexico alive.
