Overview

The Bloody Road of Gold: Calamity, Wild Bill, Boone May, Courage and Romance in the Old West by Michael Schall Johnson

Tenderfoot Jack Neuman came to Wyoming as a fifteen-year-old orphan, to seek his fortune. He lodged with Crazy Horse and his Lakota tribe. He later scouted for the U.S. Army. He achieved financial security by prospecting for gold and purchased his dream ranch property near Hat Creek, Wyoming. He learned both the hardships and solitude of pioneer life and grew into a man on the Cheyenne-Deadwood stage trail. Lonesome for company, Jack brings out his childhood sweetheart from Minnesota, Heather, and marries her, but his devotion is on destroying the bad guys, not his marriage, and his beautiful young wife soon has an affair and breaks his heart. The naïve young man could not foresee the challenges that lay ahead of him. He teams up with Calamity Jane and D. Boone May. With their gallant exploits, they are elevated to legendary heroes. When Jack meets Heather in Deadwood years later, she's running an elegant brothel and he's a U.S. Deputy Marshal. Their youthful love is rekindled, but Heather does not know if Jack has matured enough out on the trail to now be a responsible husband.
