Sixteen-year-old Benson Sadler meets a most unusual man in 1870. Chained to a tree, the man seems destined to hang for murder. In response to the boy's curiosity, Hawk Eyes shares his story of bad luck and misadventure. As if a master storyteller sitting comfortably by a campfire, Hawk Eyes relates near-death escapes, living with the Cherokee, gunfights, the death of friends and loved ones, and a quest for revenge. Ben can see vast landscapes painted from the words of the doomed man and feel the wild history of the West come alive. Will he have to watch Hawk Eyes die at the end of a rope?

These days, David enjoys traveling throughout the American West, where he reads, writes, researches, and sees firsthand the people and places along the way. David says, "I enjoy hiking the old trails, scaling the slopes, traversing the mountains and mesas, and encountering all of the sights, sounds, and scents of the West. I feel quite at home in the places of which I write. To boot, I've had an appreciation for the written and spoken word for as far back as I can remember. I especially love the literature that speaks of the Western frontier - its history, fiction, characters, music, natural beauty, and romance."
