Hyde's Corner - Book I - No Man's Land is the first installment of a historical novel of epic proportions. Book I - No Man's Land details the story of a family saga only three books can tell. Selmer Burks grows into a man many will call monster, yet, he is a man capable of great love and devotion to family and community. Selmer Burks, youngest son of Silas and Mathilda Burks, sees his family decimated in brutal fashion by Cedric and Jared Hyde. At nineteen, he embarks on a suicidal plot of revenge against those he holds responsible, but before he makes a fatal mistake, a newspaper headline catches his eye. With a cunning beyond his years, he wins election as sheriff of the newly formed Sundowner County. Under color of law, Selmer Burks begins a terrifying campaign of revenge that spans thirty years. His vendetta of hate claims the life of his wife and is responsible for the rape, pregnancy and death in childbirth of his beloved daughter, Laura Lee Burks. Selmer Burks makes arrangements to transport his daughter's body home. But hate has claimed it's pound of flesh and part of his sanity as well. On the drive home, Burks plots the murder of Doctor Herman Beaman, who has accompanied him, as well as the bastard boy he distains as his grandchild.
