The year was 1853. For handful of cowboys turned California Gold Rushers, it was time to go home. Then Lonnie Kilgore and his fellow Texans met Western legend and former mountain man Jim Bridger, who told them of a lush range waiting to be claimed in northern Utah. Now, the Texans have purchased land on the Green river and come to San Antonio to gather up some longhorns. But with Indian trouble, law trouble, and woman trouble along for the ride, the cowboys are finding out the truth about this paradise: to live on land you bought and paid for, you have to be willing to die...
The Green River Trail Paperback edition by Ralph Compton
Ralph Compton stood six-foot-eight without his boots. His first novel in the Trail Drive series, The Goodnight Trail, was a finalist for the Western Writers of America Medicine Pipe Bearer Award for best debut novel. He was also the author of the Sundown Rider series and the Border Empire series. A native of St. Clair County, Alabama, Compton worked as a musician, a radio announcer, a songwriter, and a newspaper columnist before turning to writing westerns. He died in Nashville, Tennessee, in 1998.
For the ranchers riding with Rand Hayes, things had gone from bad to worse. The Santa Fe man who'd contracted 5000 head of cattle for the drive north was dead - murdered by renegades. Now the Texans had a herd of longhorns and only one choice: cross the mountains and Mojav Desert to Los Angeles.
Gladstone Pitkin is a man with money and a dream of ranching in New Mexico. He buys Gavin McCord's cattle and hires his Texans for a trail drive from Independence to Santa Fe. But with an ill-fated gambler on the drive, they are all heading into a death trap.
Lou Spencer, Dillard Sumner, and their fourteen Texas cowboys brought 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, through Nebraska Territory, and into the wilds pasts Forts Laramie and Bridger.
Lindsey's golden anniversary 50th novel! The #1 "New York Times"-bestselling author presents a passionate novel of hidden identities, family secrets, and love that transcends a 50-year feud set in the majestic ranchland of 1880's Montana Territory.
