The time: 1932, just before the repeal of Prohibition and just shy of Wild Bill's 14th birthday. The place: Vermont, near the Canadian border. Bill's dad, desperate to preserve his cattle herd through a bitter winter, resorts to smuggling whiskey--a traditional family occupation. He takes his son on a voyage that will remain etched in the reader's mind: a journey into the demonic and spellbinding past. What they find is the genuine stuff of legends.
