Californios by Louis L'Amour

Book Description

Captain Sean Mulkerin comes home from the sea to find his family s Malibu ranch in jeopardy. The death of Sean s father has pushed his mother to the edge of financial ruin, and now it s up to Sean to find a way out. The rumor is that the elder Mulkerin found gold in the wild and haunted California hills, but the only clue to its whereabouts lies with an ancient, enigmatic Indian. When Sean and his brother set forth to retrace their father s footsteps, they know they are in search of a questionable treasure with creditors, greedy neighbors, and ruthless gunmen watching every move they make. Before they reach their destination, the Mulkerins will test both the limits of their faith and the laws of nature as they seek salvation in a landscape where reality can blur like sand and sky in a desert mirage."

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » A days-of-yesteryear tale about a real nice widder woman of Irish extraction who with her sons and a mysterious ancient Indian saves her home from raiders and other varmints. The setting is 19th century Malibu country and lady of the house is Eileen Mulkerin, "the mother of two grown sons, she looked young enough to be their sister, a strikingly beautiful woman." While son Sean is rescuing the lovely Mariana, from her whip-cracking fiance (not surprisingly named "Machado"), events are act in motion that will lead to the Old One's secret groves and magic - one gunman is shriveled - Rip van Winkle style - in minutes, and gold dust appears on Eileen's mantelpiece. To be read with one hand in the popcorn box. (Kirkus Reviews)
