Publisher Comments:

They Risked Their Lives To Bring Cattle to Missouri. Now They Faced A Journey Twics As Dangerous...

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. Now, Ralph Compton brings this violent and magnificent time to life in an extraordinary epic series based on the history-making trail drives.

The Oregon Trail

Lou Spencer, Dill Summer, and their fourteen Texas cowboys briught a herd up to Independence, Missouri, and sold half to a wagon train heading West. Then the Texans hired on, leading the battling greenhorn pioneers 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.

Synopsis:

Lou Spencer, Dillard Sumner, and their companions find themselves in a hazardous adventure. Among the wagon people there is fighting, killing, and stealing. Ahead lay the formidable Rocky Mountains and a band of renegades.
