|Seraphim Falls: In the 1860s, five men have been tracking a sixth across Nevada for more than two weeks. They shoot and wound him, but he gets away. They pursue, led by
the dour Carver, who will pay them each $1 a day once he's captured. The hunted is Gideon, resourceful, skilled with a knife. Gideon's flight and Carver's hunt require horses,
water, and bullets. The course takes them past lone settlers, a wagon train, a rail crew, settlements, and an Indian philosopher.
