Description
An intrepid reporter's investigation into the death of a controversial major reveals a surprising story of betrayal and redemption It is 1866, and Sam Morrison, reporter for the St. Louis Herald , is aboard a steamer bound for Fort Standish off the coast of Massachusetts, determined to solve a mystery. The fort is about to be renamed in honor of Charles Rawley, a major who recently died in a fire while trying to prevent the escape of a captured Sioux chief. But just who was Rawley? Morrison is told a dizzying host of tales about the man--some call him a despot but others describe him as a martyr. He was a man all too willing to execute a deserter, but one who would spur his troops to do the utmost to ensure the safety of women and children. As the investigation unfolds, Morrison doesn't know which stories to believe--especially when it comes to the truth about Rawley's death. Thrilling and wily, Killdeer Mountain is a deft triumph of historical fiction. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dee Brown including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
