in Montana, Nelson Story set off on one of the most extraordinary journeys in 
frontier history.  By his side was a bunch of misfits and renegades,  hard 
fighting, war bitten Texans with nothing left to lose.  On his tail was the 
worst kind of enemy, brutal outlaws fixing to bleed his trail drive dry.  
Pushing his way through four harsh territories and three brutal seasons.  Story 
would defy the Union Army, get a hold of a hundred Remingtons, and take on a 
thousand riled up Sioux warriors, before he reached Virginia City, and came 
face to face with the man who wanted him dead.
