At this site you can purchase new copies of my Civil and Indian War book, “Rough Enough” that follows young Richard Clow into the Civil War through his letters home to his sister in Boston while he is on the front lines in Petersburg, VA. Then you can follow him through his reenlistment after the war when he joins the 13th Infantry to build front line forts in the Upper Missouri River Basin of Montana and read his letter to his sister in 1869 from Fort Buford, where, as First Sergeant, he was witness to several Indian battles. Finally, battling through melancholy, loss of family members and depression, he finds a new life, riches and a wife in the gold fields of Deadwood, SD. He was panning in the hills the same summer that Wild Bill was shot. You’ll love the history! It’s non-fiction, yet a great mover through some lesser known periods and areas of our country. Enjoy!
