The story of Job, a part of Hebrew wisdom literature, is a work that explores the question of , "Why do bad things happen to good people?" It is an ancient story that takes place in the now forgotten land of Uz.

One day I wondered to myself, "What if the story of Job had taken place in modern times? What if it had taken place in the American West...what would the story sound like then?"

Buck: A Rancher's Tale is this author's answer to that question.
