Spring, 1870, Against the worst of man and nature, the small band of settlers press toward the west Texas frontier where maverick longhorn roam free, and fame and fortune wait for men of courage and vision. At the end of their journey lie the Palo Pinto grasslands that stretch toward eternity, a raw and untouched land broken by the Kiowa and Comanche. Upon the arrival of the intrepid pioneers it became a land that brought the dawn of the cattle heyday to the west--and spawned an era that became an American legend in the century that followed.
This is the story of fearless devotion to duty and fierce daily battles for survival against scorching summrs, winter blizzards, and the savage raids of bloodthirsty Indians. Above all it is the Story of Charlie Justiss and his wife Angela who, with a few close relatives and friends, form what will grow into the largest cattle operation in Palo Pinto County, symbolizing the fullfillment of their dreams and hard-won ideals in the glorious new land.
