From the Texas brakes to the Canadian River they blazed a trail with courage, blood and tears. The only riches Texans had left after the Civil War were five million maverick longhorns and the brains, brawn and boldness to drive them north to where the money was. Now, Ralph Compton brings this violent and magnificent time to life in an extraordinary epic series based on the history of blazing trail drives. Armed with only a Colt rifle, a Bowie knife and courage as big as the West, Ten Chisholm, the bold, half-breed son of Indian scout Jesse Chisholm, leaves New Orleans with a price on his head. His only crime - loving the beautiful daughter of a powerful New Orleans gambler who has promised her to a wealthy man she hates. With a team of battle-toughened cowboys and ex-soldiers and a vow to return to Priscilla and make her his wife. Ten rides into the harsh Texas brakes and the heart of Comanche country. Now, he must round up wild longhorns and set off across the Red River, through a thousand miles of swollen rivers, angry Comanches and treacherous outlaw attacks - on a brazen quest to open a new trail to Kansas on the savage frontier.
