A man can run only so far . . . so fast.

Jamison Jakes is a well meaning - but friendless - heavy drinking drifter who left his boyhood home in Kentucky in search of nothing; and found it at every turn. Now, at age 34, he is merely surviving and in desperate need of something to give his life purpose. After signing on as a wrangler in Dakota Territory and working a four-month cattle drive, he finds himself in Cheyenne, once again out of work. But it's in Cheyenne that, by chance, Jakes meets two people who will change his life forever: a brash, cocky illiterate teenage boy and a college teacher turned bounty hunter.

I found this book to be hard to put down. I could hardly wait to discover the reason for the title. The author is very descriptive, and I felt as if I were a part of it. I wholeheartedly recommend this book.

Delightful. I was drawn into the lives of each character immedialtely. The decriptions of time and place made you feel like you were right there with them, good times and sad. I would recommend this to anyone .. even those who don't usually think of reading a Western ...

What was most striking to me about this story was the feeling that the author mulled over the plot and then took his time in the telling, rather than just slugging out formula fiction, which is what is found in most westerns. This book is fresh, engaging, and unpredictable. I especially liked getting to know the Jamison Jakes within its pages.

This is a story I didn't want to end. The author got his main character to a high point in his life and left me wanting to know what happened next. Hopefully there will be a follow-up book that will provide me with some answers.
