Jesse Owens was only nine years old when his family pulled up deep roots in their Tennessee valley coalmining town, and headed west. Riding a borrowed horse, he got to ride drag with the outriders. In Oklahoma Territory, he shot an outlaw in the back while saving one of his fellow outriders.
Outlaws kidnapped Jesse's sister and two of the Stillwell girls in the Texas Panhandle, while the men from the wagon train were off somewhere wiping out an Comanchero camp.
