Idaho Territory, 1879 .... Some things never change. Child abuse is one of those things. Austin Everett is sixteen years old, living in rural Idaho Territory with his father and stepmother, and suffering regular beatings for everything he has done wrong, and many things he hasn't. That is, until the day a mysterious gunman kills his father, Rock Everett, in the dark of the night. Austin is now a true orphan, and for reasons not even completely known to him he goes after the man he believes to be his father's killer. He is joined by a recently resigned lawman from Idaho City by the name of Alto Martinez, who has left his badge behind to hunt down his former best friend, who has murdered his wife and young baby in cold blood. On a trail of vengeance and death side by side, Austin and Alto meet up with the one-armed, one-eyed vaquero named "Lefty," and the beautiful Desia Anderson, who is following her runaway daughter north into Montana. Together, the four of them travel to the gold camps of Montana and a rendezvous with destiny that will change their lives forever.
