Publisher Comments:

Mordecai Lewis and his sons Michael and Andrew ride into the Spanish province of Texas to hunt wild horses, planning to sell the animals back home in the Tennessee canebrakes. The expedition proves fatal for Mordecai and leaves the Lewis boys in peril on both sides of the border: with a murderous Spanish officer in Texas and a blood vendetta with the Blackwood clan, a neighboring Tennessee family.

Synopsis:

Ambushed in 1816 Texas for trying to capture wild horses, the sons of murdered veteran and farmer Mordecai Lewis are eventually permitted to resettle in Texas, where one of them falls in love with the daughter of a wealthy French landowner and both are treated as horse thieves by Spanish patrolmen. Reprint.
