A "Visitant" is a Visitor from the Spirit World or one who comes back to the land of the living when they were believed to have died. What better terms could be said about a rag tagged group of Confederate soldiers who lived through all the bloodshed and turmoil of the American Civil War. Rusty Rivers leads these war weary Confederate soldiers west to Beckley West Virginia. When Rusty Rivers accidentally killed the town's near-do-well Roy Bloomfield, he feels obligated to help Bloomfield's family.
Rusty forms a Company to provide a Labor Force that has a major impact on the rebirth of Beckley and he saved the surrounding Counties from economic disaster when there is a crop failure in 1868. Rusty married Sally, a war widow who Sheriff Jordan believes killed, Frank Yancy. Yancy was seeking to kill Trusty to avenge what took place at a crossroads before Rusty knew the Civil War was officially over. For almost 18 year, Rusty's life had been idea until Lloyd Thompson came to Rusty with a business proposal to open his family's coalmine. Rusty did not invest in this coalmine but Roy Bloomfield's son who came to work for Rusty after graduating from Harvard steals the Thompson Coalmine proposal and goings into business with a Classmate from Harvard. When Lloyd Thompson believes that Rusty stole his business and his family's property, Lloyd kills Rusty and Rusty's son Dug Rivers kills him. When Dug Rivers learns why Lloyd Thompson killed his father he uses a twist in the West Virginia State's Laws to prevent Bloomfield and his Harvard business partner from profiting from the deaths of Rusty Rivers and Lloyd Thompson. Although "Vengeance is mine says the Lord," the story of the Visitants become the means to extracting that Vengeance.

About the Author
I was born in Milwaukee Wisconsin and raised in the Town of Granville which no longer exists. I graduated from Granville High School and the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee. I took a Regular Army Commission after graduating as a Distinguished Military Student in ROTC. I served in South Korea in a HAWK Air Defense Missile Battery before called upon to teach Advanced Marksmanship in 8th Army. I developed the concept of using Sniper Teams to control the same area as a US Army Battalion on line and helped to design the XM-21 Sniper Rifle used in Vietnam. I commanded a Hercules Missile Air Defense Unit in Union Lake Michigan, when I went to Vietnam on my "official" tour I Commanded Headquarters Company of First Field Force Vietnam. I was the Public Affairs Officer in 20th NORAD Region until I resigned my Commission on April 29, 1975 which is the day Siagon fell to the North Vietnamese. I formed Harpers Ferry Arms Company that made Civil War and Revolutionary Reproduction firearms, uniforms and equipment. Using my international contacts that made these reproductions I expanded into making other products for clients and imported them through James River Imports and Development Corporation. During President Carter's years I could not import things cheap enough to keep these companies alive. Year's later my relationships with overseas Companies brought me into the Tobacco business and eventually into trying to help Cambodia become a modern country with major projects in Electrical Power, Oil and Gas Production, Fertilizer and Concrete Plants and the reclaiming of the land as part of the Cambodian Veterans Rehabilitation Program. As Virginia American Management Corporation's Executive Vice President I was within days of signing these agreements with the Cambodian Government when President Clinton who was bribed my the Communist Vietnamese Government, illegally used the North Carolina Federal Court to stop me. For the detailed true life story about all these things I suggest that you obtain a copy of my Book "What Price Justice" Published on Smashwords.com.
