Format: Mass Market Paperback
This novel won the 1954 Spur Award for best western novel of the year. The story focuses on the eighteen-year-old Dan Nathans who is traveling with his parents and young brother to settle in a region of southeastern Oregon. Dan, who is alienated with his father, goes to work for a local, and powerful, cattleman. He soon finds himself caught in a feud between the cattleman and the settlers. He is also caught between his affections for a young woman, who is believed to be of ill repute, and his own upbringing. The reader sees him mature through the novel.

Gripping tale of life in the old west and the struggle to survive. A great story about life, love, betrayal and loss. My favorite book ever written. I've read it at least 10 times in the last 30 years.
