Summary
  • A rancher hires 11 schoolboys to drive his cattle to market when the gold rush lures all the men away. Along the trail the boys learn how to do their job and become men
  • "The time is 1877, the pace the wild Wyoming-Montana territory. Wil Andersen, a flinty old rancher, has a huge herd of cattle ripe for market when his regular hands, inflamed by gold fever, desert him. In desperation, he hires the only "men" available for the perilous 400-mile drive - a pack of scraggly schoolboys. Through skill and harsh discipline, Wil Andersen whips them from greenhorns into seasoned cowhands. But before the long drive is over, the boys discover that the price they must pay for manhood is a terrible one - murder and revenge! The stunning heartbreaking climax of this extraordinary story will surprise you - and perhaps even shock you" -- back cover
