When the War Between the States was finally over, many men returned from battle only to find their homes destroyed and their families scattered to the wind. Bodie Johnson was one of those men. But while some families fled before advancing armies, the Johnson family was packed up like cattle and shipped west--on a slave train. With only that information to go on, Bodie set out to find whatever remained of his family. And he would do it. Because no matter how vast the West was, no matter what stood in his way, Bodie knew one thing--the Johnsons would survive.
