The Guardian

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


"Life in the Ozark Mountains of northern Arkansas was traditionally one of moonshine stills and less than law abiding hill folks, the Wakefield Clan being no different. Except that they owned more than thirty miles of the range of mountains, with its many lakes, waterfalls, lush meadows and breathtaking wilderness. Life here was one of serenity, yet dangerous as they cooked the devils brew, but it’s how they made their living, all they had ever known,…so, life continued.
This was an acceptable way of life for the Wakefield family, had been for generations, and they were happy, at least all but one of them. Lincoln Wakefield knew there was something more to life than making whiskey, knew there had to be. The world was larger than just thirty miles of mountaintop, and he longed to see it, experience it firsthand. He hated the moonshine business, everything about it, and especially having to deliver and collect for the illegal drink. Yet he endured it until his sixteenth birthday, and one day during one of his deliveries, it became too much for him.
Returning home after twenty-three years, he was a wanted man with the law not far behind him. But he was home, reputation and all,…and it was then that his new role in life became a mystery of sorts as he sorted out and solved the problems his family had encountered,…and doing so without anyone knowing his true identity. This is the story of the gunfighter known only as Angel, and how he became known as the Guardian….A story of family love and togetherness, all tightly woven together to produce the legend of the Ozark’s Guardian Angel.

Not knowing if this will, or will not be my last installment of Upshur, I will venture to say this anyway. He is now in control of his future, and may fall into the annals of the unknown, The hearsay. Forgotten by all except those gunfighters who have heard of a fast gun somewhere, but are unable to find him. He is, after all, a legend, known only by his readers, An honest man of the times, who holds family and friends foremost in his heart. Until next time?...Thanks!
