(From the publisher):
Armed only with a Colt rifle, a Bowie knife, and courage as big as the West, Ten Chisholm, the bold, half-breed son of Indian scout Jesse Chisholm, leaves New Orleans with a price on his head. His only crime - loving the beautiful daughter of a powerful New Orleans gambler who has promised her to a wealthy man she hates.
With a team of battle-toughened cowboys and ex-soldiers, and a vow to return to Priscilla and make her his wife, Ten rides into the harsh Texas brakes and the heart of Comanche country. Now, he must round up wild longhorns and set off across the Red River, through a thousand miles of swollen rivers, angry Comanches and treacherous outlaw attacks - on a brazen quest to open a new trail to Kansas on the savage frontier.
