The novel's central character is Nathaniel Isbister, a former professional baseball player turned drifter. Coming across a town dominated primarily by a religious cult called the House of Jonah, he is ultimately called upon to lead the town's only other residents, a ragtag band of circus freaks, in a high-stakes baseball game to determine which of the two groups will be forced to pack up and leave town.
