Life in fictional Pindall, Wyoming, population 658, is tough. Tourists rush through town to the gates of Yellowstone National Park, only an hour up the road, and the town's sole industry, a sawmill, has been taken over by a multinational corporation that cares only about the bottom-line. For Shari Brock, who loses her on-again-off-again husband, Brad Brock, in a tragic accident, it's tough to listen to the stories that the townspeople, who consider him a legend, tell about him. It's even harder when his illegitimate daughter, Erica, arrives in town. Meanwhile, Shari's son, Jason, embarks on a cockeyed crime spree that makes him the laughingstock of the town. But that isn't all: Erica fully expects to be welcomed into the family, a wolf appears out of nowhere, and the yearly town celebration becomes a battlefield.Add to this a cast of colorful characters who lend this romance of the western heart both grace and humor: Ronald Dailey, a sawmill manager who falls in love with a mysterious environmentalist; Lex Stacy, a microbiologist with a passion for Yellowstone, art and muscle cars; Shari's prickly mother-in-law, Marguerite Brock, who accepts the lonesome choices that have made her the richest woman in town until an old love reawakens her sense of longing; Dave Phillips, a cowboy whose horse has tragically betrayed him; and many more.
