It is the future, and the end of the world as we know it does not come through nuclear war or an asteroid impact, but from within the earth itself. A global geologic holocaust has destroyed civilization, leaving only a tiny fraction of people to rebuild scattered colonies.

At age sixteen with little else but girls and coyotes on my mind, I’d long quit worrying about the handful of wild horses. One day, I saw a little foal out there. He just looked back at me without a trace of fear. I know it sounds strange, but I felt an instant liking for him. There was something about the way he carried himself. He didn’t take any guff off the other foals, and asserted himself at every opportunity. I called him Dominator.
I didn’t know it yet, but Dominator would be the key to solving our coyote problem. That horse was a warrior and absolutely hated coyotes.I guess you could say he saved the ranch.
The first day I saw him in action was the first day I thought I had a clear shot…
