Eighteen-year-old orphan Esther Chambers heads west in search of her only living relative, her distant cousin, Ferris Pickett, in the lawless frontier town of Century, Oregon. There's a lot of wide open land in Century but, somehow, not enough. Esther has arrived in the middle of a range war; it's cattle against sheep, and water's at a premium. Small incidents of violence swiftly escalate; before long, blood spills on the dry ground, and the railroad starts to think twice about laying tracks through Century. No railroad means no town, something Pick and his men will go to any lengths to prevent. Meanwhile, Esther finds her sympathies divided between her cousin and a sheepherder named Ben Cruff, a sworn enemy of the cattle ranchers. As her passion for Ben and her land grows, she begins to see how at odds these things are with her cousin's own interests. She can't be loyal to both; at some point she'll have to make a terrible choice.
