Publisher's Summary

In the Texas backlands in 1885, 12-year-old Joey Shipman's father dies under mysterious circumstances, and the boy is forced to live with his stepmother and Blair Meacham, a hanger-on at the farm. 

After the death of a black farmhand and friend, and another "accident" that almost takes Joey's life, the boy runs away and joins forces with his only kin - Beau Shipman, a drunk and a jailbird. Beau, along with an outlaw, a San Antonio prostitute, and a sheepman, become Joey's unlikely partners as he is trailed by their murderous Meacham, in league with Joey's stepmother in their scheme to inherit the Shipman farm.

Another great Elmer Kelton & George Guidall Combo

I thoroughly enjoyed the entire story. As usual, Elmer Kelton renders an authentic Western adventure that delivers excitement flavored with humor and clever dialog.

As usual, George Guidall brings the tale to life with his narration.
