Jimmy Goodnight, a young, earnest cowhand,
recovering from having been brutally abducted by Comanches who slaughtered his
family, sets his life on a new and surprising course by visiting a county fair.
There he agrees to try to pull out an ax that has been deeply imbedded in an
anvil and that has defied the efforts of the strongest men in Texas.
Jimmy’s astonishing and triumphant achievement
at the fair changes his life. With the prize money he follows his dream,
recruits cowboys, puts together a herd of cattle, and drives them across the
plains to a deep canyon, where he intends to make his own private kingdom.
Goodnight’s luck and courage bring him an early and gratifying success. Above
all, they bring him the comradeship of his men, and the friendship of a
lifetime, when he meets Jack Loving, who is everything Jimmy Goodnight isn’t—handsome,
graceful, a naturally gifted horseman, and a great dancer. Together, Goodnight
and Loving make a formidable team, and their relationship is one of complete
trust, the bedrock on which Goodnight’s growing empire rests, on a seemingly
solid foundation until a woman appears with whom both men fall in love.
All goes well until Goodnight makes a fearful,
vengeful, and unforgiving enemy, takes on an Eastern big businessman as a
partner, whose daughter he falls in love with, and fails to notice the growing
mutual attraction between Revelie and Loving. Download and start listening now!
