The novel recounts the adventures of a teenage boy who runs away from home and meets up with the Glanton Gang, a group of outlaws assigned to kill Indians around the Texas-Mexico border in the mids. Nichols says the book was unlike any other he'd ever read.
He says he was most intrigued by the relationship between the main character, who is never named, and his nemesis, Judge Holden.
