Goodnight Trail, The
Ten thousand wild longhorns...Two thousand treacherous miles...Only a handful of men had the guts to tame them both. An extraordinary saga of the trail-blazing cowboys who made their fortune driving cattle from Texas to the Great Frontier.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.
Former Texas Rangers Benton McCaleb, Will Elliot and Brazos Gifford ride with Charles Goodnight as he rounds up thousands of ornery, unbranded cattle for the long drive to Colorado. From the Trinty River brakes to Denver, they'll battle endless miles of flooded rivers, parched desert, and whiskey-crazed Commanches. And come face-to-face with Judge Roy Bean and legendary gunslingers like Clay Allison.
