Riding across the Rio Grande, Creed expects to find frontier justice for the real culprits - a murderous gang of bandits who killed his brother. Instead he finds another country torn apart by its own civil war. And Creed must choose which battle he wants to fight: Mexico's or his own.

Now Creed has to choose—between Northern law and Southern loyalty…

When the Civil War ended, Slate Creed’s toughest battle hadn’t even begun. First they drove him from his Texas home for a crime he didn’t commit. A crooked federal marshal with an itchy trigger finger started dogging his trail. And now, on a manhunt Missouri to find the renegades who framed him, he’s headed straight into a deadly snare: a ruthless scheme plotted by none other than Jesse James.

If James has his way, Creed will soon be tightening the noose around his neck…


Based on actual records, this exciting epic series captures the postwar West as you’ve never seen it before – the explosive story of a town held hostage by Northern corruption…and the one man who dared to fight back. Hallettsville, Texas and many of the characters and events depicted in this series are real.





It was Martha Doak's last wish—and it may lead Slate Creed to his last showdown. Creed promised the half-blood squaw that he'd see her son Little Bee safe and sound to his uncle in the Choctaw Nation. Trouble is, the trip will take him through some of the meanest badland settlements the Nations have to offer-towns where Little Bee's kind isn't wanted—and the rebel Creed is. As murderous bushwhackers stalk their trail, the boy and Creed live by quick wits, cold steel, and an unbreakable pact...

But this time, will the Texas rebel's pact break him?



Slate Creed wants only one thing now that the Civil War is over—his good name back. The last thing he wants is more trouble—but it just won't stop dogging his trail. First of all, there's his old pal Clay Allison, who's found himself a romantic rival in none other than Cole Younger of the notorious Younger clan. But even more dangerous is a band of hostile Comanche...

And this time, Creed's luck just may run out.




On the run since the Civil War, Slate Creed sees a chance to clear his name when he finds Marshall Quade—the man who helped to frame him. The hard part will be getting him back to Texas to tell the tale...especially when a trumped-up charge of murder threatens to put both their necks in a noose.



 Creed has a signed confession in his hand—the confession that will finally   clear his name. With his nephew and sister-in-law he's headed to Texas. But his trail is fraught with danger...and it won't do Creed much good to regain his reputation if he loses his life in the process...
