Summary
Cowboy drifter Rick Cooper is on the run in the California desert when he meets Gladys Ryan, an eccentric widow who offers him a ride in her classic 1970 Mustang. Before long she convinces him to accompany her to Northern Ontario to help refurbish her hunting lodge, promising him a share of the upcoming season's profits and hinting at more. The offer is too good to pass up. Rick takes to life in the bush, working hard to make the lodge successful. In his free hours he hunts birds, reluctantly taking Bucky, Gladys' ancient golden retriever along with him. But when the lucrative season comes to an end, Gladys refuses to share the profits, instead offering the hired man a few thousand dollars in wages. In the middle of a drinking bout, an argument ensues. Rick shoves Gladys and she falls and hits her head and dies. He takes her body into the remote bush and disposes of her trademark Mustang, telling anyone who asks that she has gone off on her annual snowbird vacation. No one seems suspicious and it looks like the perfect crime. Rick seems to have it all figured out...except what to do with Bucky..
Summary
When cowboy drifter Rick Cooper meets Gladys Ryan in the California desert, he accepts her offer for him to accompany her up to Northern Ontario to help refurbish her hunting lodge. Rick enjoys life in the bush and works hard to make the lodge successful, but when Gladys offers him a few thousand dollars in wages instead of a part of the profit, an argument ensues while the two are drinking and Ricks pushes Gladys, making her hit her and die. When he has buried her body and covered his tracks to avert all suspicion, the only thing he needs to figure out is what to do with her ancient golden retriever, Bucky.
