TRAVEL TO THE PAST AND CARRY A BIG STICK
As a freelance writer, Jack Naile was used to getting an occaisional fan letter. But what Jack's wife, Ellen, found in the mail-box one day would change their family's lives forever and alter The course of human history.
The letter contained a magazine clipping showing a 1904 street scene in Atlas, Nevada, visible on the far side of the street a store front's sign reading "Jack Naile - General Merchandise."
The four people in the photo, dressed in the style of the period, are unmistakable - Jack, Ellen, their almost grown son and teenage daughter, somehow drawn back through time to live decades before any of them were ever born. And, it all happened before, and before that, history each time subtly changed. But this time Fate introduces new players to the drama.
A life and death battle begins, with modern military weapons and technology to be auctioned off to the highest bidder in the past, whatever the cost in human lives.
With time transfer bases and tanks, helicopters and automatic weapons, a small army of murderous thugs - and ruthless ambition for world conquest - history hangs in the balance. Their sixguns blazing, Jack's and Ellen's only allies are the fabled 7th United States Cavalry and two-fisted, rough riding, Teddy Roosevelt. That ought to be enough.
