Comanche’s Wars was crafted to highlight the struggles between American progress and peace after the U.S. Civil War ends.  Comanche’s Wars is a story about a protagonist, Stonewall, a black stallion from Virginia embarking on a journey of self-discovery during America’s aggressive push to the West. Stonewall’s journey will parallel that of a nation’s story that embraces the tribulations and triumphs on battlefields across the Southern Plains. The book’s key characters triumph over adversity men and women experienced fighting for their land, cultures, traditions, and ways of life.

The author understands the tenacious dynamics of war; he fought alongside very brave men and women during Operation Iraqi Freedom. These post-war projects give him opportunities to safely express unwanted feelings through the eyes of a horse. Writing is truly healing.
