In the waning days of Indian Territory, the multi-racial, teenaged Rufus Buck Gang embarked on a vicious, childish, and deadly 13-day rampage to reclaim Indian lands. Based on the true story, this novel creates a turn-of-the-century tapestry of violence and innocence, butchery and grace—mirroring and chafing against the backdrop of a burgeoning US, and a disappearing American West.
