Twenty-two years old Cole Morgan struggled after a career ending football injury and then the tragic loss of his parents in the winter of 1937. He felt like a man with no destination... running from lost opportunities and memories better left alone. Maybe it was for this reason he accepted the offer of a near stranger to use his education and backcountry skills to work on the Greybull, one of the largest ranches in Wyoming. With little fanfare he packed all his worldly possessions in his beloved truck and headed for the small town of Meeteetsee. After falling gravely ill upon arrival and being nursed back to health by Julie McCabe, the rancher’s daughter, Cole begins to realize that his future may hinge on long-held secrets of the ranch. He’ll be tested by tough men, rogue animals, and the worst nature can muster trying to solve the 70-year-old mystery that could save the Greybull Ranch.

To be honest I have not read a western novel for many years. I wanted to try a new author and Stephen Smart did not let me down. The story flows nicely and is well read by Rusty Nelson. The author does a nice job painting mental pictures with words that makes you feel like going back in time. I found the book refreshing after reading so many that have honestly let me down in the past. I felt like I had gone back in time when as a kid I watched shows about cowboys and was shown the difference between good and evil. I hope Stephen Smart has another western for us soon.
