A Montana tale in the late 1920's. Prohibition is in full swing, but drinking and pool halls were a way of life. Ray Frost, a homesteader in this barren windswept land is struggling with the problems of his lonely life. Glimpse life in Northern Montana, the Hi-Line with Ray, and Geraldine, his mail order bride. It's a journey with barn dances, rodeos, blizzards, pool halls, Indians, pow wows, along with desperation, tragedy and insight.
