Business is booming in Abilene. The cattle herds from Texas are making a lot of people wealthy. The Texas ranchers now have a market for their beef and Abilene has everything in it that a young cowboy could want after being on the trail for so long. All of the shops, saloons, and whorehouses are flourishing, but how long will the rowdiness and lawlessness be tolerated. A town making that much money attracts those who would resort to theft and murder to get it. And why shouldn’t they? The lawmen of the time have learned. They are always outnumbered.
