1864: A tragic encounter between white settlers and Comanche tribesmen on the Texas frontier sets the stage for the epic saga of two brothers,  both divided and linked by fate.
  
  Jim Barclay: Taken from his family by the Comanche, he grows from a mischievous boy into a hardened warrior, and later becomes an apprentice shaman of the Kiowa tribe.  His adventures with famed warriors such as Quanah Parker, Big Bow and Mamanti the Skywalker lead him across the plains of Texas and into the bloodiest battles of the Red River War.
  
  Jake Barclay: Haunted and scarred by an act of cowardice that leads to the death of his first lover and the loss of his younger brother, he rejects his chance for a life of comfort and drifts across the war-torn land as a Texas Ranger, buffalo hunter and scout, driven on by a desperate need for redemption and revenge.
  
  A final day of reckoning will come, when the debt between brothers is paid in blood.
  
  Blood Brothers is a rousing Western adventure in the sweeping tradition of such classics of the genre as Little Big Man, Dances With Wolves and Lonesome Dove.
