“Well, Doc, I guess by now you understand we’ve got no goddamn use for sympathizers who love those black skinned folks.” Realizing that the dial of his life was showing the hands near the midnight hour, the trembling doctor felt a sudden serene and willful peace come over him.
Thunder at River Station is a compelling and vivid fictional story of two doctors of medicine involved with the thundering sounds coming from millions of long horn cattle, blazing guns, and men with very different views on life that were once part of the expanding and rugged Western frontier spreading from Missouri to Texas during the turbulent years of the mid and late 1800s.
This is a must-read for those with interest in the Civil War and the issues faced by individuals and our entire nation during that time.
