Staking a homestead claim in the untamed Canadian frontier of the 1880s was a hard proposition. When the manager of a large cattle company runs roughshod over the settlers, homesteader Hank James takes a stand.

David McGowan's "Homesteader: Finding Sharon"

Gritty historical saga evokes Canadian frontier with vivid story telling.

McGowan's story is also about Hank finding love, while learning that what appears on the surface is not always what lies underneath. The true grit of Western settlers is tested in this historic saga, in which the cattle company is using every trick in the book against them. In his fight against the land-grabbing cattle company, Hank decides he wants it all, including the woman he loves. He finds Sharon, who calls herself Miss Sadie, running a bordello.

The dreams of early homesteaders in the West were not always strong enough to survive. But with Hank on their side, the settlers unite in their battle to make their dreams come true. And does he get the girl? Find out in Homesteader: Finding Sharon.
