The past has a funny way of catching up with a man. At least, that's what Captain Matthew Horn has found out. It's 1870, and for the thirty-five-year-old ex-Confederate officer, the War Between the States is a distant, but not forgotten, memory. Phantoms from what seem like another world plague his soul, and when he returns to his home after the war, Horn is faced with the stunning realization that life as he knew it before the war is dead to him now. His house has been pillaged, his wife and young child taken prisoner and believed dead-as are his hopes for a bright future. So Horn becomes a man of the mountains, a man hoping for an escape from his demons. When a winter storm suddenly unleashes its fury on the lonely man, he and his stallion, CoChise, find themselves trapped in a blizzard. After nearing death, Horn finally makes his way to the nearest town, only to discover that a wagon train is trapped on the pass-women and children left to suffer and fight to stay alive. Horn quickly gathers a search party and begins to lead them back up the trail. Mary Howard's "The Lone Trail" is a western adventure tale that weaves together the fates of a group of brave settlers, bonding them for life. Matt Horn will need to use all his knowledge and training to make it down The Lone Trail.
