In 1874 up in the Cascade Mountains in the Yakima country, a man, Doc Maker, had a dream – to make wheatland of the high, rich plateaus, to build a railroad through the precipitous passes, to establish mercantile houses and banks and homes for the people who would work the ranches and the farms and the businesses.
He was a big man with big ideas.
And that made him a prime target for the fearful, the greedy and the lawless.
