Publisher's Summary

Former Texas Rangers Benton McCaleb, Will Elliot, and Brazos Gifford ride with Charles Goodnight as he rounds up thousands of ornery, unbranded cattle for the long drive to Colorado. From the Trinity River brakes to Denver, they’ll battle endless miles of flooded rivers, parched desert, and whiskey-crazed Comanches. And come face-to-face with Judge Roy Bean and legendary gunslingers like Clay Allison. For McCaleb and his hard-riding crew, the drive is a fierce struggle against the perils of an untamed land. A fight to the finish where the brave reach glory—or die hard.

Skipped chapters!!!!!!!!!

I have read the Trail Drive series a while ago and thought it would be fun to listen to it. I was very disappointed in the amount of chapters that where skipped!!! This is a cowboy book and they cut out gun fighting chapters!!!!!! This is just a politically correct version of this book and I don't know why they even made it if they weren't going to tell the whole story. I thought the narrator was very good that's about all.
