The novel ranges from the rough streets of early 20th-century Manhattan to the vast expanses and treacherous intrigues of life in Wyoming cattle country. Tom Callaghan, 19, agrees reluctantly to leave New York for Wyoming to avoid a stretch in Sing Sing prison — accompanied by Will Sherman, the same man he assaulted. At Shermans Box T ranch in the Wind River basin, Tom immediately clashes with Wills headstrong daughter, Ellen, who views Tom as the usurper of her late brothers place. She is consumed with guilt over her role in her younger brothers death by the untamed black stallion, Caliban. And Tom quickly finds himself facing the enemies of his benefactor, Will Sherman, in a deadly reckoning.McLain’s screenplay, based on his novel, was a finalist in the international Writer’s Digest Screenwriting Competition.
