Publisher's Summary

When the Civil War ends, where can a former Confederate soldier go to escape the long memories of neighbors who supported the winning side? Where can Johnny Reb go when he can't go home? He can go out west, where the land is hard, where there is danger on every side, and where no one cares for whom you fought - only how well you can do it. Walt Ames, a former cavalryman with the First Virginia, is headed west with little more than a rifle, a revolver, and a pocket full of looted Yankee gold. But in his way stand bushwhackers, bluecoats, con men, and the ever-restless Indians. And perhaps most dangerous of all, even more dangerous than the cruel and unforgiving land, is the temptation of the woman whose face he can't forget. When you can't go home again - go west!

    "fantastic original western adventure!"

    It's great to have such a refreshing take on the cowboy genre. I'm really looking forward to the rest of the series!
    Well read, well written, and enjoyable to listen to. If you're a fan of the genre, or want to try something a little different, then give it a go. You'll be glad that you did.

    If you could rename Brings the Lightning, what would you call it?

    No need to. The title becomes justified in the story.
