Synopsis: Caprock, Texas, is a sleepy cow town where not much happened until oil is discovered in the 1920s. Suddenly the town comes alive, with thousands of people streaming in to find their fortune. Some are honest folk like Elise and Victor Underwood, who pray for a little luck with their daily bread. But too many are twobit swindlers. And then there's Big Boy Daugherty, a frontier mobster who corrupts and destroys everything he touches. In a town where moonshining or lying about your Saturday night date has been about the worst that happened, Sheriff Dave Buckalew now faces a whole different set of circumstances as his town springs to life - in good and not-so-good ways. Allied with Buckalew is Slim McIntyre, a cowboy who's looking for ranch work and finds, instead, a whole lot of trouble.

From the Publisher: From one of the West's greatest living storytellers, winner of numerous awards, including the Spur, the Golden Saddleman, and the Western Heritage Award, here is Elmer Kelton's magnificent new novel of the wildcat West Texas oil boom of the 1920s. It used to be that the worst crime in Caprock was moonshining or lying about your Saturday night date on Sunday morning--until someone struck oil. Now the scent of the stuff has brought every dreamer, drifter, and two-bit swindler to town. Among them is the frontier mobster Big Boy Daugherty, who warns any who'd stand in his way: Get Out or Die. One man will do neither. Sheriff Dave Buckalew is a man too proud to give up and too stubborn to give in. He liked his town the way it was--before the bootleggers, brothels, and fortune-seeking roustabouts--and so did a lot of other hardworking decent folk. Together they'll fight to win back their town--and their future. This is the story of their heroic stand.
