Based on historical documents and more than five years of research, Broken Trail tells the story of a rancher who comes across five Chinese girls who are being transported from San Francisco to Wyoming, where they will be forced into prostitution in a mining camp. The story, written by Alan Geoffrion, has been made into a screenplay. The movie will air on June 24th and 25th on AMC and stars Robert Duvall and Thomas Haden Church.

Baker & Taylor
After the death of his sister, cowboy Print Ritter and his young nephew find adventure while driving horses to Wyoming, and attempt to rescue five young Chinese girls from being forced into prostitution.

Perseus Publishing
Fulcrum's first novel and the inspiration for the AMC original miniseries starring Robert Duvall and Thomas Haden Church. The story follows the lives of five Chinese women brought to Wyoming to serve as prostitutes in an outpost town, a common practice of the time. Their fates intertwine with those of two western horsemen--one of which, Print Ritter (Duvall's character), undergoes a period of personal growth, from rough-and-tumble cowboy to father figure.

Blackwell North Amer
A "bowed and bandy-legged old cowboy," Print Ritter is a man with miles of dusty trail under his well-worn belt. When his sister dies and leaves all she owns to him, Print feels it's only right to take her estranged son under his wing. The two horsemen - one old, one young - set off to seek their fortune on a last, long drive across the West. But the simple rhythm and reverie of trail life doesn't last, and before long they find themselves risking everything to save five kidnapped Chinese girls from a life of prostitution. Thus begins an epic and perilous journey that changes forever the fates of these young women, their unlikely guardians, and the other characters they meet along the way.
