Wash and Chance Carston came of age in war and became legendary horse breakers on the Texas plains. But none of the hard fighting they had done could have prepared them for Charlie Goodnight. The no-nonsense, tough-talking Texan had his own way of doing things, and now he was driving two thousand longhorns to Fort Sumner in New Mexico Territory.
Joining their remuda with Goodnight's herd, they set off on a journey along the old Southern Mail route through the Llano Estacado, the forbidding Staked Plains east of the Pecos River. Before the ride is over the two Carston brothers - and Goodnight's handpicked men - are taking on Indians and rustlers, intense heat, thirst and homesickness. And that's only half the fight. Because just as Goodnight's drive is reaching its end, the Carstons' home at Twin Rifles is targeted by an outlaw with vengeance in his heart. . . .
On the merciless frontier a man and his sons were Texas Rangers all - until the civil War marked the end of their famed rough-riding legion. Now in a land of violence and brutality, scarred by war and uneasy in peace, they fought anywhere and faced anyone to uphold their honor and Ranger code.
