A Dark and Bloody Ground: Sowing the Wind, chronicles the week of October 4 - 7, 1862, when the State of Kentucky lay in the balance as vast foraging armies swept the country side; soldiers from the North and from the South fighting and dying, staining Kentucky's soil with their blood. The reader witnesses these events through the eyes of seven protagonists, four Southern and three Northern. This novel for the first time brings to life such historical figures as George Thomas, Leonidas Polk, Phil Sheridan and Patrick Cleburne, to name but a few. The events of this week changed the lives of these men and the State of Kentucky forever! Kurt Holman, manager of the Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site says, "I really like this! It's much more fun than 'The Killer Angels.' It's a real page turner. It puts you right there."
