Legendary father and son Texas Rangers Larry and John Slade, brought law and order to Central Texas for over 72 years.
Thundering through the pages of American history, between 1835 and 1916, the old-school tough Slade men came to occupy an intriguing place in the gripping tales of the Old West.
Serving as a Ranger in the Texas Revolution, and in ferocious battles against the Apache, Comanches, and Mexican outlaws, Larry Slade gained fame for his lightning quick cross draw of his two Colts. He was the ultimate frontiersman and even rode with the noted explorer Kit Carson.
His son John Slade served with the Rangers in Austin, Texas. After proving his mettle on several missions, the young man returned home only to find his parents had perished in a freak accident.
In time, he married his sweetheart. But tragedy strikes. And on his path for revenge, Slade comes into contact with the Hatcher gang. He tangles with the outlaws, and his remarkable skill with a gun is his only hope of settling the score against overwhelming odds.
Seeking justice and personal redemption, John Slade cements his father's legacy with his own equally dogged determination to fight until the end.
