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'
