About this title

Synopsis:

Dust, Sweat, and Blood is the second in a series of books by Nick Wright fictionalizing a biography of his great-grandfather, Timothy John Barnes, who 'rode with Forrest'. It begins where his first book, Spirits Remembered ended-after the bitterly contested battle at Pea Ridge in northwest Arkansas. The story follows Barnes and the remnants of three experimental companies formed by the Texas legend, General Benjamin McCulloch, before his death on the first day at Pea Ridge, or as some call it, the battle at Elk Horn Tavern. The few remaining Scouts and Raiders unite with the Rangers under Barnes' leadership forming the nucleus of a band of ordinary men called upon to perform extraordinary tasks. They make their way out of the Ozark Mountains, across Arkansas, and into the northern Mississippi railroad town of Corinth where they join with Nathan Bedford Forrest. Soon they become involved in the fighting at Shiloh Meeting House and assisting Forrest's coverage of the Confederate Army's withdrawal. Following the devastation at Shiloh, Forrest places Barnes and the Rangers on special assignment in western Tennessee, where there adventures continue.

About the Author:

Nick Wright is a retired educator and high school athletic director with a variety of interests, which include reading and travel. Many of his recent destinations have been Civil War battle sites throughout the war's Western Theater to do research for his books. Born in Arkadelphia, Arkansas and raised in Benton, Arkansas, he moved to Melbourne, Florida upon graduation from college where he taught thirty years and retired after teaching and working in high school athletics in the public school system. He and his wife, Ginger, also an educator, maintain homes in central Arkansas and coastal Florida and plan to travel and divide their time equally between their two homes upon her retirement in 2008. Dust, Sweat, and Blood is the second in a projected series of books by the author fictionalizing a biography of his great-grandfather, Timothy John Barnes, who 'rode with Forrest'. It begins where Spirits Remembered ended, in the bitter and confusing days following the Confederate defeat at Pea Ridge in northwest Arkansas and continues through the summer of 1862.
