He was also the author of the Sundown Rider series and the Border Empire series. A native of St. Clair County, Alabama, Compton worked as a musician, a radio announcer, a songwriter, and a newspaper columnist before turning to writing westerns. He died in Nashville, Tennessee in 1998. --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

Rand Hayes and his men had sold 5000 head of prime Texas beef to a man in Santa Fe. But they find out he has been murdered. Now they must try to get rid of them. Some states have banned Texas beef. So this leaves Los Aneles as their choice. To do so they must cross 2 mountain ranges and the deadly Mohave Desert.

Reluctant to see the novel end. Got to know the characters. Very well done, with suspense, edge of seat adventure. Good history as well - the route is accurate.

This book is one of the best I have read by this author. He did an excellent job of leading a reader along on a life of the Texans in the story. I think anyone who enjoys westerns will enjoy this book.
