NEW RELEASE - Memoir account of a young man in hiding and on the run in the backwoods of post-Civil War Texas.
Buck Tyler faces deception, enemies, prison and death in the years of reconstruction after the Civil War. He finds himself in love under these strange circumstances as well.
"Reaching the public road about three hundred yards from the branch crossing, they stopped, dismounted, and examined the road to see if there were any fresh horse tracks leading toward the meeting place of the Clansmen. There were no indications that mounted soldiers had passed. They were in time. A glimpse at the moon was enough to assure Buck that it was close to midnight, the time the soldiers had set to make their attack on the Clansmen. Scarcely had another minute passed when they heard the patter of many horses’ feet.
The troopers were approaching. The boys turned their horses loose in the bushes and hastily drew the rawhide lariats across the road, drew them tight about six feet above the ground and tied them to trees. Then they retired a few places into the brush to await results."
