Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the bloody end of bleeding Kansas....

Based on true events, this unforgettable novel tells the story of the Bloody Benders, a family of grifters and thieves running an isolated feed store on the Kansas plains, boarding travelers along the Great Osage Trail.

Beautiful Kate Bender was mysterious and well-versed in the dark arts; Ma and Pa were quiet and foreboding, speaking in guttural tones; and young John Bender was thought to be insane. On land soaked with the blood of conflict, the Benders made their home. And one by one, prairie travelers began to disappear....

Rooted in history, this is a vivid tale of the Benders's origins and how they became some of the most horrific figures in early post-Civil War America.
