Summary
In 1871, Edward Turrentine Bayard III, sick and restless, leaves his Connecticut home to recover out west. But when the private sanitarium in which he is to stay proves to be nothing more than a rickety outpost on the Nebraskan plains, he becomes a buffalo skinner. After returning to the East, Ned teams up with Phaegin, who earns her money rolling cigars, and Curly, a fourteen-year-old coal miner, but the newfound trio is wrongly accused of triggering a bomb at a labor rally, and they must flee. With a Pinkerton agent following their every move, the gang of winsome ne'er-do-wells takes flight on a circuitous escape through northern outposts into Indian country, past the slums of Chicago, and into the boundless Great Plains. En route they become witness to the transformation and growing pains of a burgeoning nation
Summary
Easterner Edward Turrentine Bayard III deserts his wealthy family and travels to Nebraska. After all, it will be good for his health. Once he's mastered skinning buffalo, perfected his shot, and fallen in love, he returns back East and ends up in the company of a dance hall girl and a 14-year-old coal miner. Soon a mix-up puts a Pinkerton detective on their trail, and the trio begins a circuitous escape through Indian territory, city slums, and the vast Great Plains
