The Son is a sweeping family saga that traces the story of Eli McCullough’s transformation from good-natured innocence to calculated violence, as he loses everything on the wild frontier, setting him on the path to building a ranching and oil dynasty of unsurpassed wealth and privilege. The Son deftly explores how Eli’s ruthlessness and quest for power triggers consequences that span generations, as the McCulloughs rise to become one of the richest families reigning in Texas.
Niles Gilbert is a down-on-his-luck bar owner in town, who is also a passionate member of the Law & Order League. The League will eventually become the Ku Klux Klan, but at this moment in history, they are devoted to protecting Texan Anglos from real and perceived Mexican threats. Niles is unapologetic in his racism, and often takes the law into his own hands to further these views. He comes to Eli's aid when their interests align. But Pete views Niles as a dangerous racist, whose views should never be condoned.
