Overview

In 1863 America is a Vast Graveyard

Confederate soldier Travis Anderson lives in hell. Friends die excruciating deaths and he is wracked by his own private torture as he, in turn, kills his countrymen in horrific face-to-face combat.

At the height of his misery and terror he is ordered on the most desperate mission imaginable ... to save his beloved Texas from invasion by crossing the embattled land to deliver a secret peace proposal to the enemy.

Can the daunting task reconcile his burning doubts and guilt and redeem the honor of a reluctant warrior? Will his passion for a beautiful, married woman free him from his nightmares and exorcise the bloody ghosts that haunt him?

Or will his hopes be buried, along with the Dreams of the South, on Cemetery Ridge?

Anderson's odyssey reveals to him and to the reader the horrendous scale of the American Civil War. Misery and horror is not limited to the notorious killing fields of Shiloh, Gettysburg and Vicksburg. Death is everywhere. It inhabits the quaint village of Gainesville, Texas, the tree-dotted hills of Indian Territory, the plains of southern Kansas, the streets of Nashville, Tennessee, the caves of Kentucky, the farms of Indiana, and the highways of Ohio.

"Historical novels are enjoyable way to experience the past first-hand, if the author has done his homework. With painstaking descriptions of events, setting, weaponry, and even animal behavior, Cemetery Ridge is a jewel of historical accuracy and a rare delicacy for Civil War enthusiasts."
