The Amarillo Trail
A family fights their demons on a dangerous cattle drive in this Ralph Compton western.
Doc Blaine has signed a big contract with a cattle buyer up in Kansas. After a couple more good springs, Doc might finally be able to retire, but for now he’ll have to contend with a band of marauding brothers who are out for vengeance against the Blaines.
Another set of brothers might prove to be the bigger liability—his own sons. Doc needs sizeable herds from each, but Miles and Jared Blaine have been feuding for years over the same woman—even after Miles married her. And Jared once vowed that someday he would kill his younger brother—a threat he never took back…
But Doc believes he can get both sons to Kansas—as long as one doesn’t know the other is making the same drive…
