Book DescriptionHis family slaughtered by Comanche, a teen boy is left to die on the prairie. Will he find the grit to survive?
Texas, 1853. Thirteen-year-old Nigel Blackthorn is the spoiled son of a Protestant preacher. When his missionary family falls victim to a brutal Comanche attack, his easy childhood crumbles in an instant. While he narrowly escapes the death that claimed his loved ones, the preacher's son finds himself alone and struggling to survive on the wild frontier.
When Pascal stumbles upon Nigel, the mule-train driver offers the boy a ride in exchange for hard labor in an apprenticeship. Nigel accepts years of labor to gain food and shelter. Spurred by his desire to avenge his murdered family, he endures grueling days and countless painful lessons. With the vision of his dead parents in mind, can he survive long enough to find justice or will the Wild West claim yet another victim?
