    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.

    good western.

    Enjoyed it. but, a weak ending. a bit too mushy and illogical.

    The Wild Horses of White Mesa is the second installment of the Long Dusty Trail series, and tells of Jim Highsaw and Josh Randles efforts to save their army contracts for supplying beef and horses to Ft. Sumner, New Mexico. When the snow storm of the century kills off most of their herds, they are forced to resort to catching wild horses to fill those contracts. Outlaws, crooked gamblers, and just plain bad men add to the problems of raising their high spirited sons, Bobby Glasgow and Jack Highsaw.

    disappointing language

    I can not believe the same person wrote the first book in this series wrote this one. The first one was so enjoyable with almost NO bad words. This..Show More »

    This is the third and final book in the Long Dusty Trail series. It brings to an end the struggle of one families determination to build a cattle empire in the foot hills of the southern Rocky Mountains. Rustlers, thieves, bandits, and Indans have plagued the "Flying C Ranch" both on the long dusty trail from Kansas City with the first herd of Herefords, to the sensless killing of Bob Glasgow on his front porch.

    Moderate at best

    Fair book series....attention to detail lacking. Dates and time mistakes. I guess if you do not listen close it is good entertainment.
