“This country don’t care how old you are, it will kill you just the same.” Samuel remembered his father’s words, but it was the murder he had witnessed and the Chinese gold that now threaten Samuel’s life. Set in Idaho’s 1870’s Warren’s gold camp and Slate Creek ranch and supply town on the Salmon River, this coming-of-age historical novel takes you into the raw days preceding the Nez Perce and Sheepeater wars of Idaho.
