Topic(s): Westerns, Adventure
Details: Barnabus Pike is no gunfighter and not much of a street fighter. Eddie Holt is a black boxer in a white man’s world. They’ve both taken their share of hard knocks. Now they’re looking to survive a brutal winter in a remote Montana line shack, collect their pay, and settle down for good. Then they cross paths with a hardworking Irish immigrant and his beautiful, spirited sister, who’ve been burned off their land. It’s a fight Pike and Holt don’t want, don’t need, and don’t dare turn their backs on—especially when one of the perpetrators might be one of Pike’s old friends. Hunted like animals across the frozen countryside, Pike and Holt will risk everything—including their reputations, their dreams—and their lives.
