This is the story of Taisie Lockhart, flame-haired Texan beauty, and of the four men who loved her. They were part of the fiery, quick-shooting group of men and women who fought for their land in the early days of the great Southwest.
Taisie and her men of the Laguna del Sol Ranch set out to drive their herd across a thousand miles of wilderness to the cattle markets north of the Kansas border. What happened on the long, perilous trail makes a story of strong passions and constant danger. Men fought each other for the love of a fabulous beauty. But they stood together to fight stampedes, savage Indian attacks, high water, and the bloody raids of cutthroat rustlers who were determined to destroy the people of the cattle country. With the help of the famous Wild Bill Hickock, the drive advanced. And with it went the exciting love story of Taisie Lockhart.
A silent film adaptation was released in 1924 by Paramount, starring Jack Holt.
