Plot Summary

Ballard's trail jumpers attack the Wyatt Company wagon train, killing young John's parents and kidnaping his brother, Jim. In post-Civil War California, John Wyatt, now a man, pulls together a vigilante posse, The Singing Riders, who all ride white horses, dress alike, and ride the trails singing and rounding up outlaw gangs. Meanwhile, John is ever on the lookout for the gang that murdered his parents. Written by Jeff Hole

Quotes John Wyatt: [addressing potential recruits] And the answer, men is: we must band together. You, Carter; you, Russell; and every man here that's suffered from the injustice of these gangs. And it's up to us to clean them out. Now my plan is this: every man here will ride a white horse, wear a black shirt and a white scarf. And this way we'll know each other in battle. I'm asking for single men only. Men who'll stick. Who'll join me here?
