In this sequel to SOUTH CALIFORNIA PURPLES, set in 1975, a small town in a rural county is trying to reconcile the sweeping changes of across the nation with the town’s way of life. A theft of livestock escalates to arson and the murder of a dozen people. Sheriff Ty Dawson finds himself in the center of a battle between cattle ranchers and a hippie commune, each growing closer to committing violence to the other and tearing the town apart.
