Description

This is Jericho's Road. Take the other: When the young Texas Ranger Andy Pickard, is assigned to the Texas-Mexico border, he learns the meaning of this ominous notice on the edge of a great tract of ranch land above the Rio Grande. It is Jericho Jackson's country - and Jackson is at war with a similarly ruthless cattle baron on the Mexican side of the river, Guadalupe Chavez. Jackson hates Mexicans, and 'Lupe' Chavez has a life-long hatred of gringos. They are rustling each other's cattle, raiding and killing on both sides of the border, and heading for a bloody showdown. Only the Texas Rangers stand between them. Andy is teamed up with Ranger Farley Brackett, a former Confederate soldier with his own prejudices against Mexican people.
