"Douglas C. Jones is one the great novelists of the American West, and Roman is one of his finest works--a hugely entertaining story with unforgettable characters."--James Donovan, Author of A Terrible Glory: Custer and the Little Bighorn
Young Roman Hasford stood by his mother and sister on the family's Arkansas hill farm while his father was off fighting in the Civil War. Now that his father has returned, Roman heads west to blaze his own trail. Eager for adventure, Roman gets more than he bargained for--from the rough-and-tumble boomtown of Leavenworth, Kansas, to the blood-soaked prairies where he fights Cheyenne warriors at the Battle of Beecher's Island.
Authentic and action-packed, Douglas C. Jones's Roman is an epic, unforgettable coming-of-age story, set against the background of the sprawling, wild, new frontier of the American West.
