If you love adventure, family and America, you will enjoy the tale of Colton Rusk. History provides the backdrop for the story of a disabled soldier struggling to rebuild shattered lives in a hardhearted world.

Rusks poignant story brings history to life with the enduring saga of Lincoln, Dodge, Grant, and the unethical Doctor Durant as they unite the country and open the savage West. The man who brought President Lincolns dreams into existence was Dr. Thomas Durant, a financial genius who reigned at a time when ruthless greed determined the fates of cities and states.

Here is a novel that proves history does not have to be stuffy. It will keep you guessing, entertain you, and inject you into Americas exciting past. There is war, epic turmoil, and perseverance against all odds. Omaha, Nebraska, has been the home of Union Pacific Railroad since the 1860s.
