|Description:||Charles Wayne yearned for life in the mountains but his prison was the little railroad station where he was agent and telegrapher for a small salary. Jefferson was not a large place, consisting of two buildings, the station and the water tank. So when Charles walked outside in search of distraction he was surprised to find plenty. First there was an elderly man with a large, red mustache accompanied by a slender boy. Then, an impoverished tramp by the name of Ananias Brown. Within the next few hours, Mr Brown would be dead and Charles would submit his resignation, more determined than ever to leave boredom behind to chase a life filled with rugged adventure.

Author Bio for Altsheler, Joseph A.
Joseph Alexander Altsheler (April 29, 1862 – June 5, 1919) was an American newspaper reporter, editor and author of popular juvenile historical fiction. He was a prolific writer, and produced fifty-one novels and at least forty-nine short stories. Thirty-two of his novels were part of his seven series:
The Civil War Series (8 volumes)
The French and Indian War Series (6 volumes)
The Gold Series (2 volumes)
The Great West Series (2 volumes)
The Texan Series (3 volumes)
The World War Served (3 volumes)
The Young Trailers Series (8 volumes)
Although each of the thirty-two novels constitutes an independent story, Altsheler suggested a reading order for each series (i.e., he numbered the volumes). The remaining nineteen novels can be read in any order.
