To many people, Texas is cowboys and cattle drives. The image of tough, independent men driving a massive herd of longhorns across desolate country while facing impossible odds is universally iconic. But cattle drives werenʼt just a bunch of cowboys getting together and aiming a herd of cows north. They were highly profitable and well organized business ventures that followed carefully crafted and scouted trails. One of the most famous of these was the Goodnight-Loving trail, named after two classic Texas characters: Oliver Loving and Charles Goodnight, who forged an epic friendship that has become as legendary as their trail.
