Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: After the mining company he works for goes belly up, young Max Tillman has a chance encounter with a man who has a bounty on his head. He soon takes up tracking other wanted men, but realizes he may be in over his head as he travels through some of the most dangerous towns in the West and crosses paths with those who survive by taking what is not theirs. Max meets people who draw him toward a more settled life, but is a peaceful life possible for a man with his past, especially in a region known for its lawlessness? And can he keep those he has come to care for safe?

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 August #1
    The first half of Gastineau's novel floats like a puff of cottonwood seeds on the breeze: directionless. It's light on plot and character development, but once the second half starts, it becomes apparent that the aimless drifting was, in fact, deliberate. When a failing copper mine in 1880s Colorado closes abruptly, Max Tillman is plunged into poverty and uncertainty. Originally a weak shot with both a rifle and pistol, Tillman practices his marksmanship as he moves from job to job (bounty hunter, horse trader, miner again) and town to town (Willow Springs, Kansas; Las Vegas; Albuquerque). It's only after a brutal manhunt, rife with pathos, that Tillman pauses and reflects upon his pitiable life. He finds his purpose as a doting husband, father, and son-in-law; a dedicated rancher; and a devoted Christian. Once firmly established in his fulfilling new life, however, he uncovers a murder plot. Tillman must decide whether he can unearth his violent skills, even if it is to save the innocent. His moral arc makes this western a good crossover for Christian fiction readers.
