White Desert : Page Murdock is a cynical, tough U.S. deputy marshal - the last man you'd want on your tail. In White Desert, Montana-based Murdock pursues a vicious gang into the snowbound Canadian north. To get his men Murdock must outwit and outmaneuver some aggressive, unpredictable Metis, but even before he approaches his quarry, the deputy runs into a colony of escaped slaves, and a band of Sioux, followers of Crazy Horse who fled to Grandmother's Land for safety; and neither group is entirely happy to see him . . .
