This is the true story about a real life Texas Outlaw that lived and died in Round Rock, Texas. It all starts about 150 years ago as the cowboys drove their cattle along the Chisholm Trail. Small Texas towns along the trail were booming and so were the banks. It was the perfect opportunity for an outlaw to make a fortune; at least thatís what Sam Bass and his gang thought until they tangled with the Texas Rangers.
