Publisher's Summary

On a cold, gusty night in Circle City, Alaska, Sammy Day walks into Nagle's Bar. He is only 22, but he has been on his own for 10 years. He has worked cattle from Montana to Chihuahua, but a little "accident" at a poker table in Montana sent him on a forced march to Alaska to avoid a posse. He is down to his last 50 cents.

A great story with just the Right Stuff

Great story of redemption, and old west Karma.
Loved the interaction between the heroes and how they found themselves more alike than different.

Amazingly Written and Produced

At 57 years of age. I have read and listened to thousands of books. Hundreds of writers have left their stories on my brain and in my soul. This book albeit is not a western in the classic sense. It is a depiction of those days past. Traber Burns reading is like a front row seat as every event unfolds. The most dissapointing part in the. book were those two words, " The End ." It has now become one of my top 20 books ever. Amazing .. Absoulutely a work of art!!

Never a dull moment

Although this is an older book Max Brand keeps it moving and you will feel it was written yesterday. The characters are strong and filled in so that you seem to know them. You also get involved and pull for the underdog. I started listening and could not stop. Great book.

Hold on for a wild ride

The hero is harrowed so if you can’t stand extreme conditions you may be biting your nails to the quick.
If you hold on to the end you’ll end up recommending it too.
