A good Western read. Cowboys find themselves outta work, so they hire on to the infamous Clay Allison to bring a herd of horses from Mexico up the Alamosa Trail. They weren't figuring on bandidos, indians and women making a hard job much more difficult than need be.
Good clean western adventure, of course the girls always seem to get kidnapped and loss their clothing before they are rescued. But as I said a good clean story and action packed. In this story Clay Allison is looking for a few good men to bring some horses from Mexico up to Texas and the misadventures of such action.
Jim Robison, Barry Riggsbee and Gene Curry were just three of the cowboys who were let go from the Trailback ranch after the Blizzard of 1886. Thus begins Robert Vaughn's exciting continuation of Ralph Compton's trail drive series in THE ALAMOSA TRAIL. After losing their money in a poker game some of the cowboys decide to rob a train but are unsucessful. However Jim is in El Paso, meeting with the gunman Clay Allison about delivering some horses to Allison's ranch in Alamosa, Colorado. Along the way are some adventures like the poker game Jim has, Clay Allison's gun fight and the outlaw Shardeen taking Katie Kincaid and her daughters captive to sell in Mexico. All this and the trail drive has not even started yet. THE ALAMOSA TRAIL will have you turning pages in anticipation of what is going to happen next. THE ALAMOSA TRAIL IS A MUST READ!!!!!!!!
