 Young Roman Hasford stood by his mother and sister on the family’s Arkansas hill farm while his father was off fighting in the Civil War. Now that his father has returned, Roman heads west to blaze his own trail.
Eager for adventure, Roman gets more than he bargained for—from the rough-and-tumble boomtown of Leavenworth, Kansas, to the blood-soaked prairies where he fights Cheyenne warriors at the Battle of Beecher Island.

Authentic and action-packed, Douglas C. Jones’s Roman is an epic, unforgettable coming-of-age story, set against the background of the sprawling, wild, new frontier of the American West.
