"Following the Civil War, our re-united nation was booming; a railroad had stitched it together and men of all kinds flooded west by the thousands. Among them, boys in blue who had dreamed of homesteading, and boys in gray escaping the South’s postwar anarchy. The West was wild—just the place for a generation of restless young men who had survived the most bitter war in the country’s history. It was a place where a man might lose himself, and some did. When a man went west, he went with a clean slate.
In this unrestrained setting, Exempt From Fear continues Nick Wright’s fictional saga of his great-grandfather, Timothy Barnes as he leads a handful of dedicated men from his former CSA Ranger command in confrontations not only with enemies from their past, but with newly discovered foes as well. The only failure to mar their wartime record has returned to haunt them. Once again, they must join forces to protect their friends and the fascinating group of women to whom they were attracted from villains seeking easy money and others seeking revenge.
They stood shoulder-to-shoulder throughout the War and survived. They believed in standing tall in the face of trouble, in being their own man, and to never let down a friend. These men were not trouble hunters, but when faced with it, they knew what to do."
