He's the son of a cattle rancher. A restless young dreamer who, under normal circumstances, would follow in his father's footsteps. Normal, however, is not his style.

And like his grandfather before him, he will find his dream--in the untamed wilds of a lawless frontier . That dream though might just become a nightmare.

And the closer he gets to finding the original Perley Gates, the closer he comes to meeting his Maker at the fabled gates they're named for
