In 1833 the Griffith brothers blow off the dust of the Pennsylvania coal mines and head westward, seeking their fortunes as frontiersmen and gold rushers. This is the heroic tale of their adventures in building a life in the Great American West. Written with a keen eye for historical detail and lyric violence, Deadville is slam-bang action from cover to cover. It is filled with Indian fights, horse-stealing raids, mountain and plains lore; peopled with compelling characters like Jim Bridger, Old Bill Williams, and a mysterious Indian woman called Quick Killer -- all punctuated with vivid scenes of the Mimbres and Taos Massacres, two crucifixions, numerous mine explosions, and a climactic running gun battle through a maze of dark, dank tunnels.
