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.

Starting over in Texas, he attempts to remake his career and win back the respect of his family and the love of the girl he left behind. But his life in the West doesn’t turn out the way he has planned, and soon he’s in trouble with the law again and facing a terrifying truth. When desperation drives him toward the frontier and leads to deadly action, John Henry is once again running for his life. As the story races from Dallas to Dodge City, from Denver to Trinidad and the Santa Fe Trail, he finds a new love affair, a new hero to follow – and an old enemy eager for a reckoning.

Gone West is the story of a how a gentleman becomes an outlaw, how an outlaw becomes a lawman, and how a Southern son named John Henry becomes a legend called Doc Holliday.

About The Author

Author

Victoria Wilcox was born in California to a pioneer Hollywood film industry family and grew up loving dramatic stories of all kinds, especially those with a sense of history. As a young woman she developed a passion for the stories of royal families found in English historical fiction, and felt certain she was descended from King Arthur himself and destined to discover the historic Camelot. So she began her college career as a Medieval English History major - admittedly a narrow field in American academia - before receiving a degree in English Literature and doing graduate work in Playwriting. In her professional life she has been a teacher of English and composition on the college level and worked as a technical writer and instructional designer for industry and universities.
