Chapter 10 - the final chapter of Yuma, has been submitted for posting on Storiesonline.

Yuma, is a story of a young man who is kicked out of New York City in 1921. He's given a new name and a train ticket, then told to get the hell out of town. This is a slow developing story. There is extreme violence in the later chapters. There very little sex in this story. This is a story of a time in history of hard work with few rewards A story of a young woman with a dream and a young man with a past, who come together at the right time to make her dream become reality by sheer determination and hard work.



I think of myself in that oral tradition - a troubadour - the village tale-teller, the man in the shadows of the campfire. That's the way I'd like to be remembered - as a storyteller. A good storyteller -
