From the Publisher:

The author has combined extensive research with literary extrapolation to bring to life a complex man, and evoke those years of turmoil called Reconstruction. This book is a sincere attempt to understand the Southern angst that gave birth to secession, matured on the bloody battlefields of Civil War, and persists to this day, unreconciled in the hearts and minds of many Americans.

From the Author:

All my life I heard stories about Manse Jolly - stories that, when researched, turned out to be mostly unsubstantiated folklore. But the man who emerged when the smoke-screen of folklore settled was, in my mind, infinitely more interesting than the legend. His was a story of struggle and intrigue, corruption and brutality, love and honor - and one man's inexorable path from battlefield horror to trauma-induced madness.
