In this thrilling new installment in bestseller Ralph Compton's Trail Drive series, Toby Bishop and the drovers of the Circle K ranch will have to battle the elements, wild animals, rough terrain, and dangerous people to get their longhorn herd to their destination. The drovers of Circle K ranch have to drive the herd of beautiful longhorn cattle five hundred miles northwest to Missouri if they hope to make it through the next year. Toby Bishop, a jack-of-all-trades and drifter, will have to work with the mixed group of drovers, whether they are white, black, Hispanic, lifelong cowboys, drifters, or shamed preachers. On the trail, drovers must set aside their differences in favor of a common goal. As they go north, Bishop finds himself tested: physically by the rigors of the trail; and mentally, by the grim memories evoked by the violence necessary to protect the herd. But if they are to make it all the way to St. Louis, he'll have to call on every skill and ounce of knowledge he's acquired in his checkered and violent past to overcome the unexpected obstacles threatening the drive.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A vagabond or "drifter" is an itinerant person. Such people may be called drifters, tramps, rogues, or hobos. A vagabond is characterized by almost continuous traveling, lacking a fixed home, temporary abode, or permanent residence. Vagabonds are not bums, as bums are not known for traveling, preferring to stay in one location. Historically, "vagabond" was a British legal term similar to vagrant, deriving from the Latin for ''purposeless wandering''. Following the Peasants'' Revolt, British constables were authorized under a 1383 statute to collar vagabonds and force them to show their means of support, if they could not, they were jailed.

Data Assimilation Methodology And Validation In...

The rapid expansion of urbanization along the world's coastal areas requires a more comprehensive and accurate understanding of the coastal ocean. Over the past several decades, numerical ocean circulation models have tried to provide such insight, based on our developing understanding of physical ocean processes. The systematic establishment of coastal ocean observation systems adopting cutting-edge technology, such as High Frequency (HF) radar, satellite sensing, gliders, etc., has put such ocean model predictions to the test, by providing comprehensive observational datasets for the validation of numerical model forecasts. The New York Harbor Observing and Prediction System (NYHOPS) is a comprehensive system for understanding coastal ocean processes of the Middle Atlantic Bight (MAB) which includes the continental shelf waters New York and New Jersey. To increase confidence in the system's ocean circulation predictions in that area, a detailed validation exercise was carried out using HF radar and Lagrangian drifter-derived surface currents from ocean currents-following drifters. The assimilation of HF radar currents greatly improved the ocean model performance.

Tom Lacey was a young man who lost his family during a raid by rustlers in the 1870's. Left alone to fend for himself, he sells his father's farm and becomes a drifter and fiddle foot. In his desperate pursuit for survival he becomes involved with a band of desperados, learns a fast draw, gains a reputation as the Nevada Kid, and flees with Smokey, a cowboy and drifter he befriends. After the robbery of the Kingston-Downey Express, the two sidekicks decided to find honest jobs while hiding out at a cattle ranch. Nevada had been shot through the left thigh by a pursuing posse, and taking on honest jobs was the only way Smokey could get his pard under cover and back on his feet again without getting captured. Buck Johnson was John O'Connor's ranch foreman. A tough disciplinarian who made the ranch hands tow the line. He took a dislike to the young new hire he thought was a no count farm boy. It was his job to straighten out the trouble maker and turn him into a worthy ranch hand. Tom Lacey and Samuel Embers were outlaws who split from the Younger Brothers Gang. Their handles were the Nevada Kid and Smokey. Seeking refuge at a cattle ranch, jobs are offered to these two sidekicks by the prominent rancher. Mr. O'Connor needed extra ranch hands for a cattle drive he had coming up. What the drifters didn't figure into the equation was the rancher's beautiful, innocent young niece, Polly Trainer, falling in love with the outlaw the Nevada Kid. She came from back East to live with her aunt and uncle and to teach at the local schoolhouse. Nevada's sidekick Smokey Embers had a very tough time keeping the beautiful girl from controlling his partner's soul and destiny. Polly was the one witness to the robbery of the express who carried enough evidence against the two reformed outlaws to get them into Yuma prison or worse hanged.
