“‘I have been to hangings before, but never my own…’ Thus begins the retelling of Persimmon Wilson's journey to find his true love. He goes from a Louisiana slave plantation to a Texas ranch, to riding with the Comanches, to Drunken Bride, TX, where he will be hanged. His is a love story, an adventure story, and a very American saga.
