From Spur Award-winning novelist Gary Svee -- a tale set in the untamed Montana frontier at the turn of the century, where the ways of man and nature clash in the hunt for a killer... In the dead of winter, Nashua Brue ventures into the wilderness to track and kill a wolf that has been slaughtering cattle on area ranches. At stake -- a $500 bounty on the wolf's head which brings out dozens of men for the hunt. Some of the men are friends and neighbors, others are not, but they all listen intently to the legend of the white wolf and the eyes that mesmerize you before it moves in for the kill. Nashua knows fear, but finds it more in the hard looks and greedy smiles of the strangers on the hunt. He shoulders his rifle and prepares to face down the fearsome creature that has terrorized the land, but soon suspects that the true killers are walking on two legs.
