If you have an Amazon Kindle, you might be interested in my historical novel, Braver Deeds. You can read about it, and download the first chapter for free, at BraverDeeds.com.

“Tell brave deeds of war.”

Then they recounted tales:
“There were stern stands
And bitter runs for glory.”

Ah, I think there were braver deeds.

Stephen Crane
The Black Riders and Other Lines

Braver Deeds is the story of three people in 1890 and 1898.
Matt Davys is a black cavalry trooper, a "Buffalo Soldier," who has made a life for himself in the Army.
Comes-Running is a young Lakota Sioux girl whose family is caught up in the "Ghost Dance Uprising."
Carlos Estrada-Palma was born in New York City but finds his future inexorably tied to his father's homeland, Cuba.
