The Long Dusty Trail: The Beginning, Book 1 Publisher's Summary
As the great migration of men and cattle headed west to new untamed lands in the 1880s, one man stood tall. Jimmy Highsaw was honest as the day is long - cross him and hell was at hand. Leaving his job as trail scout for John Chisum, Jim rode to Durango to visit his sister, and fell headlong into a plot to bring a herd of the new breed of Hereford cattle from Kansas City to Durango Colorado. A long dusty trail filled with romance, gun smoke, hardship, and death.
