Lucky Luke must get Billy the Kid to New Mexico so he can be tried and put in jail. They both set out on the road, Lucky Luke assisted by Rin Tin Can. But Bert Malloy has promised the Kid he would set him free…
While dragging the Daltons back to a new prison after their umpteenth
escape, Luke comes across a French sculptor, Bartholdi, who’s touring
the West with a strange sculpture: a colossal hand holding a torch.
In fact, it’s part of the now famous Statue of Liberty, and Bartholdi
is raising funds towards its construction and transport from France.
It’s not long before our cowboy is recruited by his government to
escort Lady Liberty … from Paris!
