Abandoned, expelled, and on the verge of alcoholism. One teen will discover himself on the oil rigs of northern Canada or die trying.
College freshman Tyler Hogan’s world has fallen apart in a hurry. After losing his girlfriend, he barely misses hitting a fellow student while driving drunk. His grades tank and he’s expelled during college break. In Ty’s mind, he’s left with one option: secure a high-paying oil rig job to earn the money for his education, and return home a hero.
While oil rig jobs pay well, they’re dirty and dangerous. The people are no picnic either, and it doesn’t take long for Ty to get into a feud with the locals. When his drinking continues to plague his life and his wallet, Ty must dig deeper than ever before to conquer both the remote Canadian north and his own inner demons.
