The Lost Dutchman's Mine last edited by gravenraven on 05/24/23 03:55AM View full history

    1868. Lt. Blueberry is assigned Marshal of Palomito, Arizona. He saves a "Baron Van Luckner" from a lynching, but McClure gets lured after a "mountain of gold" in the Superstition Mountains by Luckner. Blueberry hunts the gold seekers, but so do two bounty hunters. Blueberry is nearly buried alive, dead of thirst, and shot at, while Jimmy is staked out, but eventually they push on to Dead Horse Mesa.

    Blueberry, Jimmy, and Blount track Luckner up Dead Horse Mesa, a death trap of rolling stones, tripwire guns, rattlesnakes, and quicksand. Blount and Luckner partner up, but a wild man ghost haunts them, shooting golden bullets. Blueberry discovers the wild man is the REAL Baron Luckner who, having found Coronado's map in a Dutch monastery, came for the gold but was betrayed by his servant. Luckner dynamites the mesa down on our heroes. But Blueberry and Jimmy catch up with him in New Orleans as he boards for Europe - now bound for the hangman's noose.
