"Many were the ways, broad
and strait, trod out upon the
trails of Texas. . . ."
Seven souls risk everything
to seek a home on the west-Texas frontier. Canon Escondido, their destination, boasts a reputation for mystery and the supernatural in the legends of the Apache, Comanche, and Mexicans, while promising a near paradise of plenty to him who finds it.
Is it all just the stuff of legends?
Will these brave pioneers find a secret Eden cut into the harsh Llano Estacado and there establish the ideal ranch? Or have they embarked on a dangerous misadventure? Even if the Escondido does exist, and if they do find it, will it provide the bounty promised in the legends? Will it harbor the mysteries about which the legends warn? Does their innocence make them vulnerable to forces beyond their experience? Or could they be vulnerable because they are not so innocent after all?
