This novel presents a drama between 30-year-old Diane, her live-in partner, Robbie, a conflicted Native American, Diane’s father, Jake Grant, a distinguished and respected rancher of the old West, and their wealthy neighbor, Ron Johnson who steals water from the creek that runs through both properties. The action escalates from animal killing, battle over water rights to racial murder, to resolution.
Woven in is a story about John Bozeman who founded the town of Bozeman and also had sexual intercourse with Indians.
The genre is psychological contemporary fiction for adults. 65,000 words. It is most like the current TV series «Yellowstone» with Kevin Costner or Craig Johnson’s Longmire books but the emphasis is not on the mystery but more about love and prejudice, pride and greed.
