In this action-packed historical drama, a motley group of underdogs living on a prayer finds themselves trapped in a remote frontier fort surrounded by troubled colonials with dark secrets, only to discover that the only way out is to team up with the notorious Rogers Rangers in a deadly chase for elusive freedom during the French & Indian War.
Even those waging the fiercest battles just hew to hard fast rules that separate the soldier from the savage. The epic action-adventure drama follows the fearless Finn on a journey paved with bloodthirsty aggressors, mysterious women, and the rough terrain of a fledgling America. Both grave and uplifting, it’s an absorbing flight of fancy and derring-do.
The 21 short stories crafted by Tom Sheehan in THE WESTERING tell of the pioneering of those who came from many countries, many customs, many cultures, and brought much of that mix with them to create the American West as we now know it. THE WESTERING has been nominated for the 2012 National Books Award in Fiction.
