About

Overview

A Spur Award–winning Author

Ranch hands Tommy Reeves and Red Armstrong befriend the Mexican people who live nearby and are fired for not heeding the foreman’s warning to stay away. Then their former employer tries to force the Mexicans off their land by damming their water supply. When Red is shot dead trying to sabotage the dam, Tommy joins the Mexicans in their exodus — and a final showdown.

Reviews

Customer Reviews

“The coming-of age story is a staple of the western genre, but the prolific Nesbitt finds some new things to do with it, darkening the proceedings considerably. His characters, as always, feel like real people, not like Wild West stereotypes; even Cushman, the loathsomely racist rancher, is a well-rounded villain. For the author’s many fans, not to mention western readers in general, the novel should be considered a must-read.”
