A Bitter Freedom
The Civil War is almost at an end. Thousands of former slaves are set free to find their way in a world transformed by bayonet and bullets. Joshua Covington, an educated former house slave from Georgia, decides to make his way alone west to start a new life for himself and any former slaves who care to join him in an unknown and uncharted land. Armed with two good horses, two faithful dogs, a new kind of rifle, his intelligence, and wits, Joshua makes friends, battles enemies old and new, and discovers what it means to be truly free.
