One half-tail is safely locked away in jail; another is starting seventh grade. A quiet summer for half-tail hero Dolby Hart and his whitetail deer friends lulls them into a false sense of security. Even his relationship with the Windmaster has grown cold. The threat to destroy the deer of small-town Gomer is surely over. Or is it? At a nearby campground, another animal half-tail lurks in the shadows secretly awaiting the opportunity to rise up in revenge. Will Dolby hear the rumblings of revolt in time to save his friends? Will he rediscover his need for the help of God and others? Or will a half-tail uprising be their end?
