Abused orphan boy, Orville “Dilly” Dillard Jr., travels west from Ohio to Wyoming and ends up at the Hatterson Cattle Ranch. He makes friends—as well as a few enemies—and dares to wonder if he’s found a home after all. He also finds himself smack in the middle of the infamous and all-too-real Sheep Wars, in which dozens of sheepherders are murdered and few of the attacking cattlemen are ever held accountable. Whichever side Dilly chooses will set the course for the rest of his days. Either way, he has a brutal fight on his hands.
