RAGING RIVER, a fascinating novel that takes you back to the late 1880's. RAGING RIVER takes you from a quiet & proper New York State farm village of the 1880's to the flame of the great Chicago fire & on to adventure packed Texas with the druggist that got shot for gambling with the wrong man & settlers trying to wrestle a living from the land. Taken from actual letters written by David Williams the frontier unfolds as David grows from a shallow, bigoted, unhappy farm boy to a respected but broke rancher owning 16 thousand acres in lusty Texas. The Concho River courses its way through his life mostly quiet & calm, but then gathers its strength to become a RAGING RIVER. David & his friends paint a broad picture of life in the 1880's that you won't easily forget.
