Summary
A Union veteran several times over, Bobby Hale has repeatedly deserted and re-enlisted under different names to earn the enlistment bonus. After the civil war, he sets his heart on California, but only makes it as far as Montana. Now, after shooting the wrong people, he not only has to evade the US Army, also the natvie population. Against the growing conflict of the Great Sioux War, Bobby is travelling across the harsh landscape to make it back to Eveline, a poker-playing wagon owner who has taught him that he does not have to spend his life alone. Within miles of the woman he believes can save him, Hale's trigger finger lands him in trouble again, changing the course of his journey and setting him on a heart-stopping adventure across the Great Plain. Across ten years and thousands of hard-won miles, Bobby comes to understand the wilderness through those he encounters: the pioneers on the wagon trail who follow the glittering promise of gold; a Crow brave who shows him the meaning of real freedom and strength; and the militia men, still carrying the scars of the recent war, whos hatred of 'Injuns' is even stronger than their fear
Summary
A Civil War veteran journeys into the Plains Wars-stricken American West, discovering a sense of purpose through his encounters with Native Americans and settlers who scrabble for peace and survival
