Publisher's Summary

When Ruben Beeler finds a rancher friend shot to death and mutilated, he calls on Marshals Marion Daniels and Homer Poteet for help. That call begins a chase that takes the men from St. Joe into Kansas and down to Hell on the Border and the Fort Smith court of Hangin' Judge Issac Parker. In pursuit of the killers, the Marshals venture into the Oklahoma Territory, or "The Nations" as it was known at the time, following a path of bloodlust that began before the killing of Arkansas Bill Cole. Serial killers are nothing new, as the Marshals find out on the Cutthroat Trail.

Pure Genius

Best stories best author best narrator best characters Best Westerns ever. if you don't like these books, somethings definitely wrong with you. Do yourself a favor and start at the beginning of the series. Note to the author if you ever stop writing I'm going to hunt you down bust you upside the head. You have truly made my days thank you keep them coming.

Another great easy listing story.

This the 7th in the Trail series and is every bit as easy listing and good story at the first 6. Was glad to see it come along, since had about worn the first 6 out. When ever I found myself have a hard time finding something to listen, I'd just load one of these up an sit back and enjoy it again.
Couple of them I have listened to 8 or 10 times and each time just get really relaxed and let it flow. All are really good stories, with the author narrating about as well anyone I have ever heard. Each book has a few chuckles than just kinda sneak up on you, I can't see how someone would not enjoy each of these books. *****

This series is destined to be a classic

Any additional comments?

This was an exceptionally good book in the series. I think I enjoyed it more than usual because more time was spent with Reuben at home with Miss Harmony and Little Bill than in pervious books. I love Reuben's relationship with his son. Of course I DO enjoy the parts where the three heroes are on the trail. It always amazes me how far they travel by horseback with no Interstate highways!! The author adds a new character in this book - Johnny Sweetwater, an Indian guide. He is an amazing character and I hope we will hear from his in future books.

This is an amazingly well written book, and series, and the author is also the best narrator possible for these books. David R. Lewis is an American treasure.

David R. Lewis is amazing!

I've listened to the trail series a dozen times and every time is better and more humorous than the last. Can't wait for the Glory Trail to come to Audible.

Into The Nations

In this book we learn more about Reubens relationship with his son. Bill is 5 now and idolizes his Dad. The 3 marshalls have to go after a killer who cuts throats after they're dead. At Ft. Smith a judge pairs them with Johnny, an Indian guide who takes them into the Nations. Good addition to the story. Hope he shows up in future stories. Looking forward to the next story in the series.

Amazing...so sad it's the last!

I'm not sure that this author will be writing more of this series but I will be first in line if he does. I will truly miss these characters and their fantastic friendship wrapped around justice on the trail. After the first book in the series I could not read them fast enough but wanted to savior them as well. A series not to be missed.
