Pocomoto had once been of great service to the Rancher Loredo, and in
gratitude the Texan handed over to him his claim to a wild territory in
an unexplored corner of the South-West.
But it was not easy for Poco and his partner Tim to set out to establish
their ownership of this land: there was trouble - serious trouble - at home
before at last they could face the hazards of the trail.|
They hoped to find gold on the new land, that could be used to buy stock for their own ranch; but gold was not the only object of their quest, for the new land held also another secret - 'The only thing worth having in the whole of Texas'
