Synopsis: 'If you like Louis L'Amour you'll love Ralph Compton' - QUANAH TRIBUNE CHIEF 'Compton has writtebn another action packed book in this series' - AMAZON REVIEWS Lou Spencer, Dill Sumner, and their fourteen Texas cowboys brought a herd up to Independence, Missouri, and sold half to a wagon train heading West. Then the Texans hired on, leading the battling greenhorn pioneeers across the Missouri River, across Nebraska Territory, and into the wilds past Forts Laramie and Bridger. With winter closing in, Spencer's men were running out of time to reach the wide-open land of Oregon. And with a fortune in gold hidden in one of the pilgrims' wooden wagons - and outlaws circling like wolves - there were miles of shooting and dying still ahead.
