With his father gone to fight for the South, Boone McCallister and the cow hunters of the Flat Iron Ranch drive 250 head of scrawny cattle to a Gulf port south of Tampa, dodging Yankees as well as a degenerate bunch of swamp outlaws.
1864. Florida is a state that is very much cattle country and not at all a place of citrus growers and tourists. Boone McCallister's story was about more than just about driving cattle. It was also about pursuit of a gang of desperadoes who had pillaged and set fire to the McCallister Ranch-- and taken young Lena captive. And he wants it made clear-- he did not feed David Klee to an alligator.

If you like westerns this is a very good read. The setting is different from most - Civil War era Florida, complete with alligators and African American slaves. But Florida was indeed one of the earliest cowboy settings as frontiersmen rounded up the descendants of cattle left by early Spanish colonist that went wild and abundant in the central scrublands. This book is based on real elements of that history and is a well told adventure tale.
