After the Civil War, Kansas was a lawless land ripe for exploitation. German immigrant Helmut Rapp and his wife risk everything as they battle the cruel elements, the Indian threat and the dangers of the raw environment. Furthermore, Helmut has dark secrets in his past, and events force him to act with uncharacteristic ferocity. With the new railroad thrusting towards his land and greedy and unscrupulous men stopping at nothing to gain advantage, Helmut strives to preserve the life and obscurity he has worked so hard to achieve. But mob violence and murder erupt, ripping his world apart and forcing him into a deadly duel that can only be resolved by the blast of gunfire.
