About the Book

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 humour, grace and originality, Everett offers a brilliant novel that explores the alarming consequences of hatred in a divided America.
