I just found out my Ken-jitsu instructor and friend Sam Metro has finished the book he has been working on. This has been a labor of love for several years. Metro is very proficient martial artist and a very knowledgeable cowboy enthusiast. I have yet to read this novel but knowing how much love and education Sam has for all things western I expect this read to be thoroughly enjoyable. Please check out "Wind Drifters" and let us know what you think.
Sam we miss the hell out of you! Good luck with the Book!
After having served his country for twelve years, four of which included duty during those turbulent years of the Civil War, William "Pap" Paprich has decided to retire from the restraints of military life. With no plans other than to travel the United States wherever the wind takes him, he decides to visit the one man he can honestly say he owes his life to, a half-breed Indian scout named Yanni Two Feathers. Pap finds his friend embroiled in a struggle with local ruffians who dislike the fact that he served the Union rather than their beloved Confederacy. Just as things come to a boil, Pap gets a telegram from his sister begging for help. The family's ranch and others surrounding it have been plagued with murders and rustled cattle by men who seemingly vanish into thin air. The local law enforcement is either unwilling or unable to bring justice to the lawlessness. Plans are altered, and together William and Yanni make their way to Lawrence, Kansas, where skills once learned during the War Between the States will have to be called forth for the family's survival.
