Ever since they first met as eleven-year-old youngsters, a brotherhood has been forged between Lefty Wolfson, an amnesiac Anglo Vietnam vet, and Jingles Blue Moon, a full-blooded Shoshone. For five years, Jingles has mistakenly believed that Lefty was killed in action—until he suddenly encounters him deep in the Wyoming wilderness, instigating a surprise reunion that will lead both of them down unexpected paths.
After a night of bonding over a campfire, the brothers are surprised by the game warden who confronts the two men and arrests Jingles for allegedly poaching an elk. As Lefty teeters on the brink of falling into a darkness prompted by horrific memories of war, he realizes he needs to find a way to secure Jingles’ release from prison—just as he learns that the game warden is married to his high school sweetheart, Donna Williams. Now he must rely on tenacity, horses, friends, fists, guns, and his true love for help as he struggles to meet his challenges, reconcile with his past, and assure his legacy.
In this western thriller inspired by true events, a Vietnam vet fights to help his Shoshone brother and find love amid the unforgiving Wyoming and Montana wilderness.
