These include the Atlantic voyage, migrating west, soldiering alongside General Stand Watie and the Cherokee Mounted Rifles in the Indian Territory Civil War. Now only Patrick and his brother Joseph remain, driving longhorns up the Chisholm Trail. A ferocious band of Comanche warriors aims to stop them. Chapter 1 of Shortgrass is included!
