Mase Campbell has earned a reputation as a skilled wagon master, heading up freight trains for Kavanaugh Freight. Then one night in 1874 in Corinne, Utah Territory, he is stopped in the street by someone asking him for a match, and shot to death. Those who saw the murder either do not come forward or admit no knowledge. Buck McCready, captured at ten years of age by Indians, rescued by Mase, and raised by him, wants to find out who killed Mase and why. But there is not time for investigation because Jock Kavanaugh, owner of the freight line, has committed to a freight wagon race from Corinne to Virginia City and he needs Buck to replace Mase as wagon master. Buck believes that Mase was murdered because of the competition and that the murderer will probably be on the train. Buck is right about one thing: someone in the wagon crew is willing to do whatever is necessary to see the Kavanaugh venture fail.
Stranded in the rugged Sonoran Desert, stagecoach drivers James Colton and older brother, Trace, are captured by warring Apaches. Tortured and driven to the breaking point, James is used as a bargaining chip by the great Apache Chief, Cochise.

Trace rushes to negotiate a trade, but the Army has other plans--attack Cochise and his warriors at Apache Pass.

As farmers, Lemuel Hawke and his fifteen-year-old son, Morgan, are used to hard work and a hard life. But nothing prepared them for the dangers of the trail they follow west, heading for the rich, fur-trapping grounds of the Rocky Mountains. Storms, floods, and deadly cold threaten the Hawkes, but Nature's fury is not the only peril father and son face. As they follow the trail, others follow them: an unscrupulous fur trader out to claim other men's wealth as his own; a man bent on avenging his murdered brother; a woman scorned. Luckily, Lem and Morgan have allies: a band of trappers and mountain men whose gruff exteriors mask fierce loyalty and hard-won wisdom...and the Indians who see in young Morgan a powerful strength of spirit.
All Skye Fargo wants is to get to Dallas and meet up with a lovely lady. But when he rides through Hermanos Valley, he rides into a war zone. Generations of sheep herders have raised their flocks on the fertile land. But now, powerful cattle drivers are claiming it as their own. But they're not about to pull the wool over the eyes of the Trailsman...
