A woman is faced with a difficult choice when her abusive husband gets stuck in a bear trap.

For Blood and Gold

A story about the depths of desperation during the California Gold Rush in 1849.

"I was riding home after a long day’s work by the gorge. I had yet to find any gold that week. Although the clock was about seven, the sun still shone brightly. My mare’s black fur was hot against my legs."
