LOVE AND SURVIVAL ON THE MOHAVE DESERT The year 1850, the place Coyote Holes, California territories; Marshal Sam Goodfellow puts his life on the line everyday to protect the lives and property of the little town of Coyote Holes, he has sworn an oath to do his duty, and he takes this oath seriously. Coyote Holes, a cross roads and a water stop for shipments coming down from the gold fields to the north, and the gold and silver mines, their shipments, heading to Los Angeles from the Panamint Valley. Wells Fargo changes teams at Coyote Holes and the Colonial Stage Lines lays over passengers heading for Denver here as well. Coyote Holes is an important transit stop in middle of the blazing hot Mohave Desert. While this day by day routine is flowing through the rich tapestry of life in this tiny spec on the map, danger un-folds as a band of cutthroat outlaws try repeatedly to take over the town. They are attempting to rob the gold shipments, which must pass through Coyote Holes several days a week. As the plot develops, we see Sam Goodfellow fall in love, a powerful love, a love at first sight, a love found and then a love lost. Is Sam ever to find true love again? We discover Sam's relationship with each member of the little rural community. We spend time inside Sam's head, negotiating the personalities of both criminals and citizens alike. We find that life on the Mohave is hard and uncertain, and that death can come for you in a heartbeat. We also learn the lessons of greed and unbridled hatred, and that there is a difference between the quick and the dead. This is a true Western, in the greatest sense of the word, full of gun smoke, horses and nature rearing up on its hind legs in rebellion.www.thomasemmonpisano.com
