Western more focused on family values and drama. Billy kills his first rustler as a young teenager. Soon after his wonderful father dies leaving Billy as the oldest and feeling responsible.

Unfortunately his mother marries a cruel drunk soon after. Billy ends up shooting him when he tries to steal the family money at gunpoint. Later he shows up beating Billy's mother until he intervenes and she goes into labor.

The mother sends all her children to their fathers family that they do not know. Billy feels like she wanted to be rid of them. He refuses to read her letters. He assumes the responsibility for raising his young siblings.

The place of their many relatives is huge along with many close neighbours. They are welcomed and Billy watches as they make their own lives. He ends up being the oldest single man in the area.

Finally a letter arrives where their mother deeds each 640 acres and house. They all decide to forgive and return despite the stepfather. Billy is able to marry now that he feels able to care for his wife.

Wonderful book with a free price. I plan to read the series.
