From their start as a close family of loggers to their career as gun slinging bandits fighting the law and each other, the three young men try to make their way through 1880 Dakota Territory. Each chapter poses questions about relationships: what keeps people together and what pulls them apart? Every member of the London Gang must answer these questions and discover their own convictions.
