“Best cowhand in the whole state of Texas and he ain’t afraid of hell fire, neither.” That’s how Bill Sanders, top trail bos of the Lone Star country, was known by his crew… a man of tact, skill and ingenuity who had a will of steel and a sentimental spot in his cowboy heart for the one-horned, outlaw steer Sancho, whose path he crossed many times. Rustlers, cow thieves, and bandits right roughshod through the pages of The Trail Boss, giving Walter Gann’s story the same vivid, picturesque and authentic qualities as The Virginian.
