    "In a remote basin in the western part of Texas, the Cavendish clan raised cattle. From the vast level acreage, where longhorns grew fat on lush grass, the surrounding hills looked verdant and hospitable; but this was pure deceit on Nature's part. Those hills were treacherous, and Bryant Cavendish loved them for that selfsame treachery." The listener will be drawn into this classic Western in no time; it features many of the beloved elements of the genre: a lonesome, almost mythical hero (The Lone Ranger), his reliable friend and sidekick and of course his horse; in a story that tells us how these three came together in the first place.
