Heartwood is a kind of tree that grows in layers. And as
Billy Bob's grandfather once told him, you do well in life
by keeping the roots in a clear stream and not letting
anyone taint the water for you. But in Holland's dusty
little hometown of Deaf Smith, in the hill country north
of Austin, local kingpin Earl Deitrich has made a fortune
running roughshod and tainting anyone who stands in his
way. Billy Bob has problems with Deitrich and his
shamelessly callous demeanor, but can't shake the legacy
of his passion for Deitrich's "heartbreak-beautiful" wife,
Peggy Jean.<P>When Holland takes on the defense of
Wilbur Pickett -- a man accused of stealing an heirloom
and three hundred thousand dollars in bonds from
Deitrich's office -- he finds himself up against not only
Earl's power and influence, but also a past Billy Bob
can't will away.
