Digital Book format: PDF (Adobe DRM)
Will Bucklett walked away from the brutality of Marysville prison, determined to put the atrocities of the senseless war forever in the past. His one desire was to return home to a loving family and with brighter expectations. But little did he realize Fate had a very different idea for his future. As he and his younger brother bury their mother, they received demoralizing information. Their father, Salas Bucklett, was being held captive by John Bullard, of the late Union Army. Who having lost his commission as colonel, turned into a barbaric terrorist. Major Salas Bucklett of the Confederacy had previously outwitted Colonel John Bullard of the Union Army out of a shipment of gold bullion for the South. Bullard holds Bucklett personally responsible for his disgraceful downfall. He is accompanied by Evie Plummer, his malicious mistress, whose morals are lower than a snakes belly and has a heart colder than the snowcapped Rocky Mountains; she's matched only by the coldblooded killer and militant deserter, Elkhart, Bullard's ferocious and vicious second-in-command. Will, his brother, Dain, and their half-breed friend, Booger Red, trailed the merciless cutthroats through the Indian Nation, across the high plains of north Texas, and into the mountain backwoods of Colorado. During their search, they are ambushed by remnants of Bullard's desperados, fought off a war party of Cheyenne warrior at a Purgatory way station; thereby rescuing the lovely Trin Houghton. Seemingly, fighting off misfortune at every turn in their search to find and free their father. Persistence and the six-guns can be convincing tools, but without the courage and tenacity of the beautiful Juanita, and the resourcefulness of a whorehouse madam the outcome of Bucklett's Pursuit could have been devastating.
