Published posthumously, Rising is R.C. Hutchinson’s powerful exploration of one man's attempt at redemption.

Sabino - the outcast member of a rich mine-owning family - is renowned for his arrogance and brutality. For reasons of personal revenge, he agrees to lead an expedition to crush saboteurs who are attacking a railway line vital to the mine. As he leads his army of half-starved men across the arid and treacherous landscape, Sabino also embarks on a journey of the soul.
