When the Civil War ended, Gil Hooley journeyed out West, figuring that if there was any market left for his hand-crafted tents, it would be on the wide open frontier. But when his wagon breaks down in the middle of nowhere, a community begins to grow around him, one tent at a time, until Gil finds himself the unlikely leader-and defender-of his own town. Larry McMurtry called his work ambitious and absorbing, and Dee Brown acclaimed it as superb. Now Clay Reynolds tells the tale of a man who discovers that even if a place wasn't your destination, it might still be your destiny.
