Follow Cam Stearns' rise from a poor illiterate cowboy wanted for murder to one of the wealthiest and most influential men in Cuba, from Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders to the lawless emerging west. Be a part of Cam Stearns' destiny as it leads him through brushes with gun smugglers, World Wars I and II, the revolutions leading to Castro's rise to power in Cuba, gangsters, and the beginning of America's covert operations in Latin America. Cam Stearns' life unfolds before you with all the love, hate, and anguish one man can experience, from his undying love for his wife and mistress, to his betrayal by his daughter and trusted life long friend, and the death of his beloved son. The saga of Cam Stearns sweeps you through the political upheavals of the 20th century. A must read for lovers of historical fiction. * * * * * Robert K. Swisher Jr. has been a ranch foreman and a mountain guide. An individual who knows the outdoors and western history, he has successfully combined these interests in stories, poems and novels. He is also the author of The Land, The Last Narrow Gauge Train Robbery, Only Magic, Last Day In Paradise, Love Lies Bleeding, and How Far The Mountain, all from Sunstone Press. Of The Land, Publishers Weekly said: "If there were a category of historical romances written for men, this moving novel would fit the bill." Best Sellers reported: "Mr. Swisher has brought a sensibility to his perception that enables him to bring to life in graphic vignettes the lives and characteristics of man in his novels...." Book Chat called Fatal Destiny "a real blockbuster of a novel."
