Stampedes, rustlers, and hostile Indians wouldn't slow them down. They were bound for Kansas, and a Texas-sized fight!

The only riches Texans had left after the Civil War were five million maerick longhorns and the brains, brown and boldness to drive them north where the money was. Now, Ralph Compton brings this violent and magnificent time to life in an extraordinary epic

I listened to the audio version, and was very entertained.

I especially liked the Cajun accents!

Nice, easy listening, I would definitely pick up other novels by this author!

We listened to this as bwe played cards at Shiloh. Dale loved the main character and we both found some funny and repeatable expressions in this old western tale.
