With his eye for historical detail and unique ability to see into the hearts of his characters, Steve Frazee captures the very essence of the American West. In these five stories, Frazee draws on his own experiences to bring his writing to vivid life. The title story tells of Riordan Truro, an old man who's been working in the mines so long that he understands the story behind every shift, every groan in The Hill. His fellow miners think he's touched in the head, but only Riordan knows The Hill has an ominous warning for those who work in its depths. Will he be able to convince everyone to get out before it's too late?
