He could not know that a Kansas twister would destroy all he knew. On that bright spring day in 1879, he could only study with a sense of unease the thick storm clouds darkening the horizon. As he sat astride Stumpy and watched the clouds pile and boil into impressive thunderheads he measured his future. At nearly eighteen years old he reasoned that it was time for him to see something other than grazing sheep and the endless sea of grass. A two-day ride on his plodding old one-eared mule and he could be in the “Queen of the Cowtowns”. This he did know, but for when he would make such a journey, he could only wonder. He could not know of the blind jealous anger that stalked his future. He could not know that he would soon stand with the famous lawman, Bat Masterson, to face this troubled rage. Innocently beautiful Alexandria, the granddaughter of the Reverend, with her angelic gift for song and her playful smile was yet an unknown dream and hope. He could not know that Alex, as he would come to call her, would sweep him into the storm. On that day, as Lucky sat on the rise and watched the gathering thunderheads he could only recall the words of the old man, “A sky so angry passes not without a storm.”
