At the end of the War Between The States, Frank Cavanaugh had led a party of displaced soldiers from Virginia to Cache Valley in the Utah Territory. Having stayed only a short time, he had moved on further west, and over the next thirteen years built a reputation as a man who could find anything or anyone for the right price. It had also had gained him more than a few scars, very few friends, considerable money, and the name "Manhunter." Now he had accepted a job to find and return the missing son of a railroad tycoon, and the trail had led him back to the Rocky Mountains, to the town of Juniper Flat. Here Cavanaugh finds people who appear peaceful and friendly on the surface, are fiercely loyal to their friends, and ready to fight if necessary, to defend and protect their friends and their way of life. This peaceful-appearing little town is as tough as any Cavanaugh has ever found. Fast with a gun, dogged in his searches, adept at reading people and trails alike, Cavanaugh has always been a man to be dealt with on his own terms, but when he announces his mission he soon finds the people willing to put "his terms" to the test. He soon finds some of them to be unpredictable and thoroughly dangerous, and most of the citizens of Juniper Flat are as tough as he is...and he finds this to be very much to his liking. You can ride into Juniper Flat and watch Cavanaugh, "Cherokee John," Pete Oakes, Kate, Amanda, Jesse, the Pendry family, Greenriver and all the rest and follow them as Cavanaugh gets to know them, sorts out the good from the bad, makes close friends with some, and works it all through to the end.
Legends is the story of many people and many places, a story repeated many times throughout history, but it is told here through the lives of two young people and their adventures during the late Nineteenth Century and the beginning of the Twentieth, those last great days of the great American "Wild West." The story weaves through a number of historical places and events, and many actual historical people interact with the fictional characters of the story. While the town and ranches may never have existed, many of the other places are still there to this day, and may be seen be by those who would venture there. Follow Jack and Marty and their friends and families, from their first meeting and their early lives, through their discoveries and education, and be with them as they cross the continent from Colorado to the Atlantic and back again. Live with them as they discover friendship, love, and parenthood, and as they survive tragedy; and enjoy discovering with them the new technologies on the brink of The Twentieth Century. Cheer along with them their triumphs and mourn their losses, and experience with them their fears and doubts, hopes and dreams, as you follow along with them on their daily quest to simply survive and prosper, to raise their families, and to make their world a better place. Finally, watch as Jack and Marty develop into adulthood, living their daily lives and raising their own family, and share their fortunes and misfortunes and that of those around them while they left their marks upon our history. Go with them as they face the challenges of every day life to become the true Legends of the great story that is The American West and see the west and its people as it truly was.
