‘The Buzite’ By Ted Morrissey

It’s 1907 and a snowstorm is raging — but it is nothing compared to the rage young Whit Houndstooth is feeling. His beloved-from-afar Sara has died in childbirth, and Whit holds his rival Billy Holcomb responsible. He knows Billy will be checking his father’s hunting traps in Hollis Woods, so Whit goes in search of him, planning to use his equestrian strength to crush the life from him. But Whit finds that the wintry woods are filled with surprises.
