Pecan Ridge Cattle Company
May 12, 1889
After Eli tells the family about his purchase of a
hotel chain, Jon David, Amanda, Joe, and Sissy
leave immediately for Little Tree to board a train
for a trip to New Orleans in order to close the deal.
The Mexicans prepare a feast of chilé con carné,
tortillas, enchiladas and salsa in celebration of
Rosa's rescue and return to the family.
Early the next day, Eli, Martinez, the vaqueros, and
the Kansas boys leave out for Crow Valley with the
first of the Longhorns.
