Roy and his older brother Joe are drifters. Joe has a way with horses so when they happen upon Bar None Ranch which raises horses, they work out fine. The owner takes to them, especially Roy to whom he gives a horse. Unfortunately Joe has a problem with fire ... that is why they are drifters. Will Joe's problem surface again at this new farm where everyone likes the two brothers? This 175 page book builds tension as the reader moves further into the story to the point where it can not be put down.

This is an amazing book that one has to read! Its that type of book where you never want it to end and as you get to the last page, you read it as slowly as you can so it lasts for longer! Enjoy!
