Cauldron of Violence
The wild, wild West…
A time and a place when a man carries the law and his own safety in the weapons he bears.
Roving bands of Indians are terrorizing the west, destroying everything and anything in their path.
During one of these ruthless attacks, young Colin Bowman’s home is set ablaze and his parents viciously murdered.
Orphaned and alone, the Civil War beckons, providing Colin with a welcome distraction and a newfound purpose.
Fighting on the side of the victorious Union army, he finds adventure in learning the art of war.
But the war has changed him, and in the crucible of combat his resolve has been strengthened.
He decides that settling down is not for him.
He no longer has any roots and has no desire to grow any.
He yearns for personal freedom, the clean sweep of open spaces, the fresh wind in his face and the open sky above him.
His adventures continue when he takes on the task of guiding Sam Curtway and his team through Indian country, heading out West in search of a better life.
But when the Indians mercilessly attack, everyone’s life hangs in the balance.
Can he settle the score and forge a new life for himself?
Or will Colin’s desire for revenge ultimately prove to be his downfall?
