(From the publisher):
Nathan Stone had experienced the horror of Civil War battlefields. But the worst lay ahead. When he returned to Virginia, to the ruins of what had been his home, his father had been butchered and his mother and sister stripped, ravished, and slain. The seven renegades who had done it had ridden away into the West. Half-starved and afoot, Nathan Stone took to their trail.
Nathan Stone's deadly oath - blood for blood - would cost him seven long years, as he rode the lawless trails of an untamed frontier. His skill with a Colt would match him with the likes of the Jameses and Youngers, Wild Bill Hickok, John Wesley Hardin, and Ben Thompson. Nathan Stone would become the greatest gunfighter of them all, shooting his way along the most relentless vengeance trail a man ever rode to the savage end... and this is how it all began.
