Publisher's Summary

Barnabus Pike is no gunfighter and not much of a street fighter. Eddie Holt is a black boxer in a white man's world. They've both taken their share of hard knocks. Now they're looking to survive a brutal winter in a remote Montana line shack, collect their pay, and settle down for good.

Then they cross paths with a hardworking Irish immigrant and his beautiful, spirited sister, who've been burned off their land. It's a fight Pike and Holt don't want, don't need, and don't dare turn their backs on - especially when one of the perpetrators might be one of Pike's old friends. Hunted like animals across the frozen countryside, Pike and Holt will risk everything - including their reputations, their dreams - and their lives.

Hanging Woman Creek

Great story. Have yet to read or listen to a Louis L Amour book I didn't like. Make you feel like you are there in the story.

Great L'Amour Western

I like L'Amour, and over time I've come to like this book as one of his best. Although it has some of the typical L'Amour plot elements, it also has many unique features. The first person narration is unusual for L'Amour, and the protagonist is less perfect and easier to believe and relate to than most of L'Amour's. The pace of the plot is perfect. Culp does a great job.

A very good novel of the old west

I highly recommend this book. While it is a work of fiction, one can learn the ways of the west and a lot of what is missing in today’s world. Back in the day, it was finding this paperback that got me into a life long love of reading. Most of Louis L’Amour’s books are very historical and the locations described, he had been.
