West of Pecos
Two men on opposite sides of the Civil War make their new home on an even more dangerous battleground in this Ralph Compton western...
After the surrender of the Confederacy—and the death of his wife—Jed Adams stikes out for the west to find a new home and to build a new life for himself and his sons.
Tom Waldron fought to keep the Union intact—and now believes the unsettled land of the West can be cultivated into good fortune for his family.
The former soldiers—and enemies—have decided to call the fertile valley of the Guadalupe Mountains their home, on an adjoining piece of land where Jed and Tom each plan to build a cattle ranch. But the only thing they have in common is their battle scars…and the chance that the valley might just be home to another Civil War.
