The American Civil War tore at the very roots of our nation and destroyed most of a generation. To truly understand the madness and despair of such a horrendous conflict, one needs to pick a moment. Or see that war through one family’s eyes. In rural Arkansas, such were the Hancocks. Devastated by a cruel war, they faced down their personal hells and, in spite of it all, survived. Their survival is a testament to the power of love...and the American spirit. This is their story. And ours.

Excellent story! Well researched.
Loved the connection with Richard Hamilton and Travis Hartman. Please fill in the gap between Coyote Summer and This Scorched Earth. Take Willow, Travis, Batiste, and little Caroline back to Boston with Richard for a visit to meet his father. Tell us about Laura Templeton in St. Louis. Lay out the saga of the opening of the west through their lives.
