After a terrible summer of blood and fire, scout Seamus Donegan finally has reason to rejoice: his wife, Samantha, has given birth to his first son. But the time to celebrate new life is short…for the old business of death continues. Phil Sheridan has gathered his officers at Fort Laramie for a war council to prepare the winter campaign. His objective: capture Crazy Horse, the elusive Sioux warrior chief whose exploits have put the U.S. cavalry to shame. Sending his scouts ahead — men such as Seamus Donegan and the legendary Yellowstone Kelly — Sheridan will march his armies north into the valley of the Red Fork of the Crazy Woman Creek…and into a battle that will prove as brutal and bitter as the killing winter winds.
