The wagon train leader is killed and the Mesquiteers agree to guide the settlers to their destination. Bailey and his daughter Anna and the other settlers have been lured westward by offers of cheap land. Arriving, they find that the land sold them by Judge Platt and Sheriff Gorman is practically worthless, but through hard labor and courage they manage to clear it and have reached the point where they are about to make a fair living when they are beset by exorbitant taxes. Judge Platt and his cronies have information that a railroad is to be run through the territory, and they plan to break the settlers by high taxes, regain the land at forced sales, and sell it to the railroad. The Mesquiteers ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
