This will most likely end up being something between a short story and a novella. It's not supposed to be too serious, I'm just having fun with this one. What do you guys think? Hank is a runaway from a family of “rangers” - nomadic hunter/gatherers who are the bottom feeders of the American West. As Hank enters an uncharted area of the Mojave Desert, home to humanity’s rejects, a pack of carnivorous, rabid dogs steal his ticket to survival - his Winchester rifle with a custom golden engraved barrel that was made by Stevenson, the world’s most renowned long-range gunmaker whose weapons literally never miss their targets. Knowing that the rifle was what defined Hank as a person and gave him a reason to live, he realizes his only option - a journey to Louisville, KY to track down Stevenson to get a new rifle. But not even Hank, the most experienced of “rangers,” is ready for the obstacles that lie between him and Stevenson.
