Gone West

The American Wild West, 1873: Jesse James and his gang are robbing trains, the Sioux Indians are on the warpath, and John Henry Holliday arrives in Texas as a young man with a troubled past hoping to regain his place as a Southern gentleman.

So begins Gone West, the second volume in the trilogy of novels entitled Southern Son: The Saga of Doc Holliday. Born in the last days of the Old South, John Henry has already faced the challenges of Civil War and Reconstruction, of first love and teenage rebellion and the beginning of a professional career. But when a violent encounter changes everything, he is sent running far from his Georgia home.
