A modern love story set in the high desert country of the West. The Larkins were the last of an older, lawless breed who had made the West-but now their time was done. Holed up in the high desert country of Central Nevada, they brawled and stole from their neighbors until the day in 1947 when drink and shiftlessness lost them their scrabbling hold on their canyon. Then young Kit, her father, and her uncle Frank, rode, broke and ruined, into the mining and ranching town of Union.
