View: 6145In the American Wild West, the only law is the gun, and justice hinges on the speed and skill of man wielding it. Orphaned in the state of Virginia and fleeing conscription into the Confederate Army, Matt Clayton makes his way to Mexico, then braves Comanche territory to head north. It’s there Clayton meets the beautiful Comanche princess Desert Flower, whose spirit will watch over him as he travels the West, building a reputation as a fast gunslinger and an honest man. When Becky Morrison’s husband and father are gunned down by the greedy Vince McKenna and his gang, Clayton finds more than he ever expected on the Circle K Ranch: love, a home, a future. But for a man like Matt Clayton, there is no peace until justice has been done. McKenna and his allies must pay for their crimes. But can one man bring down the quickest guns of the West? Under the guidance of the White Eagle, Matt Clayton might just have a chance. Spirit of the White Eagle is a classic Western, with nods to legends like Kit Carson, Wyatt Earp, and Doc Holliday. Matt Clayton struggles with good and evil, with loss and hope, with friendship and disappointment, trying to find his place in a rapidly changing world, a world not so different from our own.
