Series: Jubal Cade
(From the publisher):
Raised in a Chicago foundling home, he went to England to learn medicine and returned to his native land with a wife and a dream.
But a cruel world sets little store by dreams and as Jubal moved westwards he found himself on a killing trail. Violence stalked him every foot of the way and sudden death lurked close to every campsite. The harsh reality of flying fists and whining bullets shattered the dream and Jubal was forced to acknowledge the truth about himself.
With sparkling white snow stained by the ghastly red of blood, the final tattered remnants of the dream were ripped away – although he had been taught to heal, his destiny was to kill.
