    1. Renamed as Distant Thunder.Books actually go back and forth.This takes place before book 2 in timeline.Once again, nice job. Working between actual events of the time.As well as placing the characters into them.Have to say, one thing that lowered it in my eyes.Had character you wished would continue.Having tragic end.Still a decent read, if you like westerns or time related tales
