Like the tentacles of an octopus, the railroad in California reached out across the state, grasping everything of value in the state. Based on the bloody Mussel Slough Tragedy - a conflict between wheat farmers and the Southern Pacific Railroad - The Octopus is a stunning novel chronicling the twilight of the frontier West. A depiction of the tensions between the railroad, the ranchers, and the ranchers’ League. The book emphasizes the control of “forces” - such as the power of railroad monopolies - over individuals.

She didn't mean to start a war by slaying their leader and stealing the sacred pendant hanging around his neck. But it was just so shiny and why did they have it anyway?

And even though it isn't possible, she knows - with every fiber of her being - that Ben has somehow brought her back to life.
