Book Description

Western
Kansas 1860. Billy Battles is born on a remote homestead just off the storied
Santa Fe Trail. More than one hundred years later a great-grandson inherits two
trunks filled with Billy's personal effects. In those trunks are several secret
journals that reveal an astonishing life of adventure and violence that until
now was obscured by the haze of time and Billy's desire for secrecy.

The journals tell of a man both haunted and hunted who, in a
desperate search for peace and redemption, journeys far from the untamed American
West to the Far East, South America, and Europe. In amazing detail they describe
Billy's interaction with a wide assortment of men and women--some legendary, a
few iniquitous, and many lost to history. They also recount his participation in
such cataclysmic events as the Spanish-American War, turmoil in French
Indochina, and violent revolutions in Mexico and South America.

Complying with Billy's last request the great-grandson assembles
the journals into a compelling trilogy that reveals a man often trapped and
overwhelmed by circumstances beyond his control, but who nevertheless manages to
persevere for ten decades.
