Gold....more gold than one man can carry!
The only clue is a bracelet, with the burnt carving of a hunchbacked flute player etched into the weathered copper.
It is a just rumor.
But to Mack McLaine, a down-on-his-luck country singer, it sounded like the Holy Grail. Somewhere among the ancient Indian burial sites there was a cave filled with gold-so much gold that, according to the legend, it was stacked like firewood.
All you have to do is find it.
From the splendor of Santa Fe to the dysty wastelands of El Dorado and the dark heart of the American Dream..... The struggle of four men to be rich beyond imagination, no matter what the price.
