In the bush country of South Texas, Captain Richard King built a sprawling ranch called Santa Gertrudis.

He’s about to find out…

The story line is excellent, the characters are quite outstanding, the langauage should reflect the times, but there is a matter of two much description. The story reads like it was written right out of a zane grey paperback. Zane had the same problem. to much description of the surroundings. it slows down the reading and makes the story read slower than it should.
