Based on real events and the true history of the legendary King Ranch in South Texas, this riveting historical adventure evokes the reality of life on the Texas frontier, as one pioneering family battles to carve out their own piece of the American West while preparing for the deadliest conflict in U.S. history . . .

Civil War is brewing. Everything is about to change. Based on true events.

When Regis Royle dreams, he dreams big. And since everything’s bigger in Texas, his dream is to make the Royle Ranch the biggest cattle supplier in the country. Problem is, the country is splitting apart, people are taking sides, and everyone’s gearing up for a full-blown War Between the States. Regis’s kid brother, Shepley, has enlisted in the Army. His trusted foreman “Bone” McGraw has left to rejoin the Texas Rangers. And the rail lines have been rerouted for the war effort. Which means Regis has to transport his cows the hard way: a cattle drive . . .

This will be one hellish journey he’ll never forget. If he survives.

With only a skeleton crew of ranch hands, Regis takes the lead to drive the cattle northward—facing more perils than he ever imagined. He and his men are attacked by a brutal, thieving band of Apache, Comanche, Kiowa, and half-breeds. They’re plagued by violent storms, relentless heat, stampeding herds, and poisonous snakes. When Regis gets separated from his men, he fears he’s reached the end of the line. But giving up is not an option.  

A Texan knows he has to keep fighting—even in America’s darkest hour—to keep the dream alive . . .
