Summary, etc.:
"Based on a historic horse-stealing adventure, A Thousand Dead Horses dramatizes the violence and perils of the Old West. Young Daniel Boone Trewick flees a violent dispute in Missouri and joins a freighting outfit to Santa Fe. He meets mountain man Pegleg Smith and is invited to join an expedition to California to steal horses and mules. Juan Medina, a young vaquero who was framed for a crime and in jail, is pressed into service in a posse pursuing the thieves. During the chase, a thousand horses die in the Mojave Desert. Circumstances throw Boone and Juan together, and they hatch a plan to turn stolen animals into a profitable future." --Provided by publisher.
