A Gold Rush-era tale wherein a couple young men drive a herd of live hogs from Oregon's Willamette Valley to San Francisco: no easy trail to be made on hoof and foot and more than six hundred miles. Adventures and encounters with highwaymen, extortionists, Indians, grizzlies, the mountain man Joe Meek, and other characters fill the story.
