Through action, adventure and suspense, author Tom Morris tells the story of a young man's comming of age in "The Edge of Forever". While this tale of a boy's journey into manhood is fictional, historical themes abound thanks to Morris's research and insight into stories passed down from his marternal grandmother.
Morris shares the common struggles faced during the uneasy time period of the 1860s following the Civil War. As settlers living on the edge of Comanche Indian territory, the McKlarrens face death and adversity each day as they struggle to start a new life.
When a band of warring Indians abducts Tom's mother and girlfriend, readers follow Tom and an old Texas ranger as they fight grueling odds to bring back the most important women in the boy's life.
"Anyone interested in historical or Western fiction will enjoy this book," Morris said. "For those with an interest in frontier Texas hisotry, 'The Edge of Forever' will provide new insight into historical events, as well as a dramatic tale of what life was like then."
Comparable to the popular Western series "Lonesome Dove," "The Edge of Forever" demonstrates that being a hero sometimes means having a will to survive and recovering what's been taken. This exciting tale of what life was like for many post-war settlers in the Western frontier weaves the fictional story of Tom McKlarren with the memories of the author's grandmother.
