In the Texas backlands in 1885, twelve-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 a murderous villain in a scheme to inherit the Shipman farm.

Nice story great on a rainy day
A real pleasure, from beginning to end by Colleen (Posted on 4/15/2015)
As is often the case for me, it's the characters that drew me in to this story. I really liked that most everyone wore not the figurative black or white hat, but some shade of gray in between. There are a few nice surprises in the plot; but in the main, I was leaning forward not to learn the next twist in the story, but to follow these engaging characters on their personal journeys. The cast was strong across the board, and Ken Jackson's unhurried narration suited the tale perfectly. I especially enjoyed Doug V. Brown performance as trusted farm hand Ruben; Jonathon Church as the tender-hearted young outlaw Tolley; and Ren Kasey as a woman with a lot of bad breaks in her past, Alta. Bravo!
