Puckerbrush Cannon by Juanita Holbrook Ingram

"AMERICAN AT ITS BEST." "This Historical Western Fiction follows the true story of the town of Forest City, Iowa, receiving a Spanish-American War cannon from the United States Government in the year 1899 and some of the events surrounding actual citizens of Forest City from 1858-1899. The story combines some of the history of the settling of the Indian Territory and of Winnebago County, Iowa. United States Marshal Clay Owen, who is from the Indian Territory, takes the train to Mare Island in California to pick up a cannon that was captured during the Spanish-American War and transport it by train to Forest City. A thirteen-year-old boy named Dakota, who is of mixed blood, accompanies him. While in Iowa, they inquire about Dakota's great-grandparents who had lived in Puckerbrush (Forest City).
This book follows the fictitious characters of Willard and Sally Duncan and their two children, who were twins, named Diana and Dennis. The family headed west in 1858 with the Lackore Family and settled in Forest City, Iowa for several years. In 1867, the Duncan family continued their journey west after the twins had reached their seventeenth birthday. While the family is traveling through Arizona, following the Butterfield Overland Trail, a young Apache Indian Brave captures Diana and takes her for his bride. The Duncan Family head back east and settle on the Chisholm Trail in the Indian Territory, while continually searching for Diana. It tells the heart warming story of a brother's search for his twin sister, who was captured by the Indians, and his dedication to her, postponing any life for himself.
