The classic, Golden Spur Award-winning novel of a man, a family, and a nation.
He came off the frontier: a buffalo hunter, a gambler, a loner. In Abilene, he won a saloon at cards and earned the fear of a lawless town. From then on, Jake Kincaid would not be stopped. He began a rampage of ambition and deal-making that forever changed a land called Kansas and the Indian Territories.
But along the way, the deeds and misdeeds of Jake Kincaid affected more than the frontier - they shaped the lives of his two sons. One who became a lawman. One who became an outlaw. Both destined to come face-to-face behind blazing guns....
From Wild Bill Hickok to the Dolan outlaw gang to Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders, The Kincaids tells the classic saga of America at its most adventurous - through the eyes of three generations who made laws, broke laws, and became legends in their time.
