The Bloody Trail
In this Ralph Compton western, a wagon train goes dangerously off course...
Jeremiah Correy is leading his family in a wagon train to Oregon when his plans are waylaid by a group of bounty hunters led by Sam Madigan, who take a man from Correy's party—the quiet, unassuming Emmett Natham, who is actually a known fugitive. But Madigan also aims to nab the rest of the travelers and ransom them off.
Now, Jeremiah must stop Madigan—and his greatest ally may be the mysterious and dangerous Emmett Natham, whose skills could save them all—or lead them to their deaths...
