The Trail Drive Series
After struggling for years to work a raw-patch ranch in the arid flatlands of Texas, young Mitchell Newland learns that his herd of scrubby range cattle will fetch ten times their local price if they're driven to Montana. He strikes a deal with neighboring rancher Corliss Bilks to back his play with cattle, men, and horses. Halfway to Montana, range pirates and a rogue Apache war party close in. But salvation in the form of a Basque sheepherder revives Mitch and his pal, Drover Joe, and Mitch realizes he isn't done. Not by a long shot. And now he has nothing to lose.
