“The Way West”
A Civil War novel by Michael J. Deeb
The Civil War ended in May of 1865. But, war raged on with the Indian Nations in the American West.
The novel, The Way West, takes the reader back to that time. Read of the life and dangers on the American Frontier through the eyes of the wives and children of military families assigned to duty there.
The Drieborg’s youngest son, Jacob, and his friend, Kenny Hecht, run away to join the United States cavalry serving in the West. After years of service and enrollment at West Point Military Academy, they are assigned, as officers, to the newly formed 10th Negro Cavalry Regiment, stationed at Fort Hays, Kansas.
Soon after their arrival, the two new lieutenants are sent on a mission to rescue a trainload of military families under attack by the war-chief Roman-Nose and his Dog Soldiers.
This sixth and final novel in the Drieborg Chronicles, will take you, from the Drieborg home in Michigan, to the violence of Charleston, South Carolina and, from the rivalries and intrigue of West Point Military Academy, to a savage war of survival on the Kansas Plaines.
“The Way West, is a stimulating conclusion to the Drieborg Chronicles series, containing strong character development that holds the reader’s attention, throughout.”
