Overview

What happens when a teen's actions result in the murder of his father? This is a story of revenge, tragedy, redemption and family values. It is also about an adventure the young Jay Morgan could never have dreamed.-----It is mid 1870s and near the East Texas town of Jefferson; a city second only to Galveston in trade and commerce. The Red River, with it's upstream log jam, has created a backwater bayou that has made Jefferson into an inland port and connected it to the Mississippi River and all points north and south. Commerce flourishes, and so does crime.----Seventeen year old Jay Morgan has left his home to seek fame and fortune. Unfortunately, he has fallen in with the wrong crowd of similar disillusioned youngsters. He gets unwittingly involved with two brothers and their illegal activities. They are a part of an outlaw gang who's outlaw father says he knows too much and must join them and participate in their planned bank robbery, "or else" -----The Nacogdoches Trail, while being mostly fiction, is based on a true story and charts the early development of the timber industry in Southeast Texas.
