1844. The bold new Republic of Texas is fighting for its life. Rallying to the cause of liberty, the brave pioneers who forged the Oregon Trail are called upon to lead a new wagon train into the fray. Leaving their homes in the thriving Oregon Territory, they face impossible odds on the wild Texas frontier, overrun with dangerous outlaws, native tribes, and the powerful Mexican Army. Among the freedom fighters are veteran commander Lee Blake and his wife Kathy, boat builder Harry Canning, and the fearless volunteers who would risk their lives as Texas Rangers. Their new leader, Captain Rick Miller, holds the destiny of Texas in his hands. But in his heart, he hides a passion for a woman he cannot have - and a dream he cannot surrender. This is the fight for Texas, in all its grit, glory, and grandeur. This is America at its best…

I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
I really enjoy "period" novels which transport me to another time. Author and narrator were successful at letting me enjoy an earlier time in America's West.
Mr. Gigante's performance, including his interpretation of female character voices, makes this set of stories both restful and entertaining, and makes their occasional stereotypes quite easy to overlook. I know I'll be listening to the whole series.
