From the Publisher:
The final entry of the trilogy that began with "The Contender" and "The Brave." Native American Sonny Bear, an aspiring heavyweight champion boxer, travels to Las Vegas with his publicist, would-be novelist Marty Witherspoon. Through Marty's efforts, Sonny finds himself involved in a highly publicized boxing match--and fielding offers to become a Hollywood film star. Will Sonny's ties and loyalties to his tribe, the Moscandaga Nation, prevent him from pursuing his dream?
