Jack Hays is just 19 years old when he arrives in Nacogdoches, Texas in 1836. Moment later, when a bully is killed, none of the witnesses dispute that Jack acted in self-defense. Despite his young age, Jack is a man who commands both fear and respect.

When he is just 23 he is made a captain of the Texas Rangers and gains a reputation as the fearless leader of a group of young men who will follow him anywhere and under any circumstances. He leads a regiment of Texas volunteers in the Mexican/American War defending U.S. supply lines, finds and destroys Mexican guerrillas, and fighting with regular Army units to gain significant successes. In so doing he earns a significant reputation for bravery and success. Jack's journey leads him to love and marriage and a transformative role in Texas history.
