    As the great migration of men and cattle headed west to new untamed lands in the 1880s, one man stood tall. Jimmy Highsaw was honest as the day is long - cross him and hell was at hand. Leaving his job as trail scout for John Chisum, Jim rode to Durango to visit his sister, and fell headlong into a plot to bring a herd of the new breed of Hereford cattle from Kansas City to Durango Colorado. A long dusty trail filled with romance, gun smoke, hardship, and death.

    Mel Adkins describes life in Alaska in the early days of statehood by a family from the plains of Oklahoma. They learned to be inventive and self-reliant in a land untouched by humans after moving more than 12 miles from the nearest road, to a 160-acre homestead on the Kenai Peninsula. To a young man just entering his teens this was a dream come true, but the physical labor that had to be done the first year, simply to survive, was more than he had ever imagined.
