Description

The American frontier could be a perilous place, but most stout-hearted travellers were expecting nothing worse than tumbleweed, rattlesnakes and boredom on their long ride. When people started to go missing in the Osage area, suspicion fell on a family who were not all that they seemed. A local legend says red corn grows on the prairie to this day as the very land is saturated with the blood of their innocent victims, so join me as we investigate one of the greatest puzzles of the Old West.
