Summary
Captured after the battle of Shiloh, Confederate soldier Jesse Wilder faced two choices: the shame of volunteering for the Union Army of the West, or certain death in the prison camp. He chose life; but upon returning home after the war, he finds himself branded a traitor, shunned, and disinherited. Drifting West, Jesse becomes a hired gun along the Texas/Mexico border; but he soon finds himself morally caught up in another battle as he begins training the Juáristas, a group of peasants led by a defrocked priest and fighting against the mercenaries of Emperor Maximillian. The tale of a man scarred by the horrors of war who finds himself drawn into yet another desperate conflict.
