A boy and his father find an abandoned ranch, and move in. One day a stranger comes along, who seems to know a lot about the place - it was his brother's place, and his brother was murdered there. Told mostly from the boy's perspective, as he admires, resents, and fears the mysterious stranger. ( )

   He distinctly heard the sound ... a horse walking, a horse that came slowly forward, then paused ... just outside.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553253212, Paperback)

The abandoned cabin seemed like a good place to settle down . . . except for the dead man in the front yard. But Doby Kernohan and his father had traveled a long way seeking a new start, and they were in no position to be choosy. Unfortunately, the mysterious man’s violent end was an omen of darker events to come, for a cycle of violence that had begun long ago was about to reach an explosive conclusion. Caught in a tangle of murder, greed, and blood vengeance, the Kernohans have no choice but to get involved. And when a mysterious beauty from deep in the surrounding hills and a deadly stranger named Owen Chantry arrive, what had at first seemed like good fortune suddenly becomes a terrifying fight for life itself.
