Western Kansas 1860. Billy Battles is born on a remote homestead rnjust off the storied Santa Fe Trail. More than one hundred years later rna great-grandson inherits two trunks filled with Billy's personal effects. rnAlso in those trunks are several startling journals that chronicle an rnastonishing life that until now was obscured by the murky haze of time rnand Billy's deep-rooted desire for secrecy. rnrnThe journals tell of a man both haunted and hunted who, in a rndesperate search for peace and redemption, journeys far from the rnuntamed American West to the Far East, South America, and rnEurope. They meticulously describe Billy's interaction with a wide rnassortment of men and women--some legendary, a few iniquitous, rnand many lost to history. They also recount his participation in such rncataclysmic events as the Spanish-American War, turmoil in French rnIndochina, and violent revolutions in Mexico and South America.rnrnComplying with Billy's last request the great-grandson assembles the rnjournals into a compelling trilogy that reveals a man often trapped and rnoverwhelmed by circumstances beyond his control, but who rnnevertheless manages to persevere for ten decades.rn
