In this novel, 18-year-old farmer Trey McLean aspires to be a cattle rancher. He leaves East Texas with four cows and heads west, but a corrupt sheriff quickly steals the animals.

Hard and Beautiful

Like all of Elmer Kelton's books, this story takes a toll on the listener like the hard country in which it plays out. Yet it shows the world with a simple and honest beauty, one where a good life is rewarded in the end.
