What is the story about?

In 1897, a horse-loving orphan boy is banished from his first foster home in New York and sent by train to Colorado where his assigned family fails to meet him so he's taken home by the town drunk. Mac is determined to control his Irish temper in order to be accepted by his new foster family despite a cold welcome from the teenage son. The ten-year-old learns about western family life and mining gold in the Rocky Mountains while trying to avoid a strange man who seems to be following him.
