Summary:

Former Texas Rangers Benton McCaleb, Will Elliot, and Brazos Gifford ride with Charles Goodnight as he rounds up thousands of ornery, unbranded cattle for the long drive to Colorado. From the Trinity River brakes to Denver, they'll battle endless miles of flooded rivers, parched desert, and whiskey-crazed Comanches. And come face-to-face with Judge Roy Bean and legendary gunslingers like Clay Allison. For McCaleb and his hard-riding crew, the drive is a fierce struggle against the perils of an untamed land. A fight to the finish where the brave reach glory-or die hard.

    This was suppose to be about Charles Goodnight's trail drive to Denver and the making of the trail named after him. Only it was mainly about 3 x-Texans Rangers that had served with Goodnight and two young people and an Indian they rescued along the way. This group gathered cattle and joined Goodnight's herd on the trip. Was an okay western but I thought it might be more of a historical western than it was.
