Training horses is dangerous - a head-to-head confrontation with 1,000 pounds of muscle takes courage.
It is these same qualities that allow John and his uncle Gus to live in the beautiful high desert of Wyoming.
A black horse trainer is a curiosity, at the very least, but the brutal murder of a young gay man pushes this small community to the teetering edge of intolerance.
Highly praised for his storytelling and ability to address the toughest issues of our time with a touching originality, Everett offers a brilliant novel that explores a divided America.
