CHAPTER 3: THE TRAP 1899: Everyone keeps telling NETTIE BRIDGER that the frozen West is no place for a respectable lady. Lucky for her, she's neither. She's seen with her own eyes the impossible devils haunting the forests around BROKEHOOF, but the terror has only hardened her resolve. She WILL find her missing son, whatever the cost. But avarice and starvation make desperate men deadlier than monsters, and the wealth of this hungry land may prove just as illusory as Nettie's fading hope.
