Book Description:

With a past of slavery and compliance, LeRoy has learned to pick his battles carefully. Johnny B, a quick-tempered Sioux, is still learning to control his anger. When dangerous circumstances bond them together, the pair learn to navigate Reconstruction Era America and all its prejudices. They save an innocent man from hanging, reunite two old friends, assist in an honorable death for an elder Indian, and discover their worth as they steadily assimilate self-respect into their lives.

From Jim Halverson’s debut novel comes a tale of adventure, purpose, and the pursuit of self-actualization. Cowboys and psychology ride hand in hand, traveling a journey from living life on the edge to finding a place of belonging, joy, vulnerability, and distinction. Through trials along their trails, LeRoy and Johnny B transform people they meet, brand the world a better place, and reap the benefits.

My Review

Mr. Halverson is a prolific storyteller. I was instantly drawn to this story and the characters. The main characters, LeRoy and Johnny B were the type of guys that I would have wanted to meet and share a drink sitting around the campfire, listening to their stories.

LeRoy and Johnny B were different but same at the same time. They may have come from different paths but they were both looking for new adventures. Another person that I liked and kind of wished that she was featured longer in this book is Alice. Both men experienced a spark with Alice. Thus the reason that Alice left as to not form a barrier between the men.

I loved every moment of this book. The journey that LeRoy and Johnny B took left them with tons of great memories. A must read.
