A Drifter, A Hero, A Dream
In the year of 1882, a small group of individuals shaped part of our nation’s history. In the decades that followed, our history books had nothing more than a paragraph detailing these events. Students were left to memorize and immortalize those that had been a canon of truth and righteous. The individuals have long since passed beyond memory, but this tale is what really happened.

During his travels, he befriends a young woman, and agrees to help her travel to Colorado causing him to question his choices, his humanity, and his life as just another outlaw in the west.
