This is the first posting of a new and long story. The two Owens brothers from Georgia end up fighting for the Confederate States of America in the War Between the States. Jesse, the elder, is invalided out several months before the end of the war. Post war, Jase starts home to Georgia to find his older brother. The quest becomes a long trail of adventure from Appomattox to Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, and he states/territories between the Mississippi and Comencheria, land of the Comanche Indians.

There are twenty-nine chapters to follow this first one. I especially enjoyed the research required to make the background of this project historically accurate. After all, I really am a retired history teacher.
