From the Back Cover:

From bestselling author Ralph Compton―a compelling tale about the man who blazed a trail that became Western history...

Armed with only a Colt rifle, a Bowie knife, and courage as big as the West, Ten Chisholm―the bold, illegitimate son of frontier scout and plains ambassador Jesse Chisholm and a Cherokee woman―arrives in the heart of Comanche country 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.


Now that Ten has returned to the harsh Texas brakes with a team of battle-toughened cowboys and ex-soldiers―and a vow to return to Priscilla and make her his wife―he must round up wild longhorns, ward off angry Comanches, and survive treacherous outlaw attacks as he crosses the Red River and sets off on a brazen quest to open a new trail to Kansas on the savage frontier.

"Very seldom in literature have the legends of the Old West been so vividly painted."Tombstone Epitaph
