Rawhide 1959-1966 Gil Favor was the trail boss driving 3000 head of cattle between frontier outposts in the 1860s. His ramrod was Rowdy Yates. Pay was a dollar a day and "all you can eat" for the drovers. They would meet people on the trail and get drawn into solving whatever problem they presented or were confronting. Sometimes one of the members of the cattle drive or some of the others would venture into a nearby town and encounter some trouble from which they needed to be rescued.
