Review Text

An elegiac account of one man who followed "his own peculiar trail" out of the Civil War, and the crippled, unrecorded company that went with him, this develops an apocryphal, irregular incident. For Jared Heath, who was charged with cowardice after refusing to obey some impossible orders, was later chosen to head a small unit of other renegades, led them west to prove their solitary, stubborn courage.....An ephemeral episode, those engaged in it remain in the shadow of the past- for all of Schaefer's intense respect and fervent prose.
