Tim wonders how on earth he ended up working for the summer at the Circle Diamond Ranch in British Columbia's Caribou region when he could have spent the glorious months of freedom from school with his friends back in Winnipeg. But that was precisely it. His parents didn't want him hang out with time on his hands.

The summer provides Tim with opportunities to prove his toughness in a rodeo - and win some attention from the rancher's daughter, Hilary. But first he must decide whether he'll do the hard thing and tell the truth about an accident on the ranch.
