Eight men. All enemies. But, they've been thrown together my circumstance and hunted by other, more dangerous enemies. Learning to rely on each other is hard but it's either that or die.

Life In The Dweeb Lane

The book spans a period from the battle of Gettysburg to the late 1800's and covers the lives of Major Wil MacKenzey of the Texas Confederate cavalry and Colonel Matthew Aaron Kingston, a union infantry officer.  Other characters are Lt. Howard Riggs, Shorty Powell and Luther Henderson of the 14th Tennessee regiment and Big Tree, a Kiowa Kaitsenko warrior.  Some years after the War Between The States, they are thrust together and suffer a long, perilous journey home.


Excerpt

The war raged around me but seemed far away. Within touch but in some distant valley. Everything was in slow motion as if witnessing some macabre symphony of orchestrated suffering. The fury of those last minutes was now like molasses in wintertime and what I felt more that anything was fatigue. It was a bone aching tiredness that left me caring for little else other than rest.

Something warm seemed to flow down the right side of my face but this, along with the battle, seemed too trivial to matter. I tried to stand but weakness pulled me down and I landed among a group of bodies. I used my foot to push one soldier away and used another for a pillow. I turned on my side and pulled my knees up toward my chest as an infant might do in peaceful slumber. The sun shining through the trees felt warm and soothing as I pulled the flap of the dead soldier's coat down to cover my face....and slept.
