Overview

In this sequel to Jade: Outlaw, Jade, a rough man of the old West, molded by a tragic past, has fallen for Rain, a woman raised by Indians, a symbol of all that he hates and all that he is.

Now these two outcasts, struggling to build their own relationship, face a West that is changing. As Jade becomes the Law, he must deal with “progress”: greedy cattle barons, religious righteousness, political aspirations, railroads, Civil War remnants, prejudice and outlaws.

Robert Flynn is a native of Chillicothe, Texas, the best known Chillicothe outside of Ohio, Missouri and Illinois, despite its size. Chillicothe is so small there's only one Baptist Church. Chillicothe is so small you have to go to Quanah to have a coincidence. Chillicothe is fairly bursting with truth and beauty and at an early age Flynn set out to find it.

His life and work could be described as 'The Search for Morals, Ethics, Religion, or at least a good story in Texas and lesser known parts of the world'.
