Story recounts the adventures
and trials of a pioneer family in the late 1870s. At the center of the story is
Gabriel, a young man who moves reluctantly from the urban North with his mother
and younger brother to join his stepfather, a homesteader in Kansas.
While his mother and
brother accept the reduced circumstances of their new life, Gabriel looks with
loathing upon the primitive one-room sod house, the meager crops, and the
endless fields of grass. Filled with memories of his deceased father and the
dreams they shared, Gabriel decides to run away and become a cowboy. However,
his search for excitement brings trouble and danger as he encounters a host of
unsavory characters while testing himself against this brutally unforgiving new
landscape. Download and start listening now!
