Overview

An unpublished 1890 manuscript by Elihu Baxter was discovered in the retirement community of Sun City Center, Florida in May 2010. In it, Boston blueblood Baxter describes how he and his best friend, Robert Fontaine, were guided by the Spirit of Adventure, a drunken prospector and the lust for gold, to the small California mining town of Korinth in 1872. For nearly two years the residents of Korinth got rich digging the treasure from the Earth. The future looked as bright and shiny as a gold nugget until Edna McCauley, a woman with a singing voice so dreadful it was rumored that President Lincoln had wanted to unleash her on the Confederacy if Robert E. Lee refused to surrender, is murdered at a church social. Her killer was Evangeline O'Meara.

Murder was a hanging offense in the Old West. The trouble was, Evangeline O'Meara had already been hanged the week before for the murder of her husband, George.

    Very good

    This book was impressive. It's filled with amazing details and written as those of that era would have spoken. Very entertaining.

    Not great, but alright.

    I thought the idea was great. A found journal that is filled with an old told story of an old west town that was overtaken by the undead.

    I felt that the story was not great. It was interesting... but filled with a hero that takes time in the middle of the most harrowing attacks to reflect on what's happening.
