Publisher Description

Peyton Lewis and Fletcher Rucker are two humble Rebel boys whose innocence was destroyed in the bloody wreckage of the Civil War. Young and desperate, they fall in with a scheme to rob a bank but are totally unprepared for the violence that ensues. Sickened by the carnage and wanton cruelty that they have witnessed, Lewis and Rucker take their cut and join the migration of those who see the possibility of a new beginning in the wilderness of the Texas frontier.
Along the way they meet rogues, killers...and two exceptional women: the tortured Molly Klinner, a woman who has also suffered dearly by the ravages of the war, and Gabriel Johnson, an Eastern beauty who decided to join the Texas migration on a lark--but will soon learn the true meaning of humanity. Together, the four travelers will weather the travails that the new frontier offers them--but will they manage to carve out a new life?

Read this

A good tale well told.

Gone to Texas

Thank you for bringing post Civil War and Texas history to life. We forget our American roots: white, black and red. The author fairly depicted all. And the struggle between peoples trying to conquer a harsh new land and conquer a new civilization.

An Entirely Different Wales.

Although I purchased this book because it was referenced by "The Outlaw Josey Wales", I found it even more riveting than Wales and just as exciting, particularly the true events upon which this story was based.
