Outside of Bowling Green, Kentucky on a cool autumn day in 1874, Jake Cooper made his way through the woods to the meeting spot where his partner, Lucas, would go in the event the stage coach robbery went bad - and it went bad, real bad. The Coyote Boys were on the run.
At the secret location, Lucas is tied to a tree.... Jake, a man of guns and lies, finds himself swept into a current of bygone grudges and scallywag schemes. He has ten days to retrieve the "Shaker Gold". In the Utopian community of South Union, locally known as Shaker Town, he learns the limitations of his wicked ways and must make a choice. He can learn from the gentle people of God, or he can walk a hell bound path. Everette Bell paints an engaging portrait of Kentucky's powerful religious heritage. Through the anger, the sorrow, the humor, and the conviction of a lost outlaw, he shows us the evolution of a soul.
