A swashbuckling western based on real events. New Orleans. 1817. Smuggler Jean LaFitte flees town, evading the law. He lands in Galveston, Texas, where he quickly finds himself the ruler of a pirate safe haven. Jim Bowie, fated to be one of the legendary defenders of the Alamo, became a close friend. This is could--or could not-be the story of their friendship, the women they fell for, the men they killed, and the adventures they had...together. One of the world's most infamous pirates--and one of the world's most famous cowboys!
