Publisher Description

     The word frontier is defined a number of ways. I choose to think of a frontier as a place where a policeman cannot be found on every corner. No matter where this place exists, the citizen has to sometimes protect herself

     Most of us think of ourselves as just ordinary and we admire those we perceive as heroes. However, heroes are nothing more than the ordinary person stepping out to somehow defend justice and honor.

     This collection of stories depicts regular, everyday folks that stood tall whether they wanted to or not.
