Overview

Jake was the ultimate big brother: cool, suave with the girls, tough, and a Vietnam veteran. Peter, the younger brother, was always the “good kid,” eventually becoming a monk at St. John’s Abbey. But they came of age on the North Dakota plains at a time when sex, drugs, and rock & roll blasted onto the prairie. Thirty years later, neither brother can escape his past.
