A High Chaparral Fanfic


Some folks tell of an ancient proverb that says: when you save a life, a bond is formed and that soul becomes yours to protect and keep safe forever ...

July 1863 ... The American Civil War is in its third bloody year. No one knows when the carnage will end ...

Barely recovered from a case of malaria contracted on a three month mission to Vicksburg for Confederate General Robert E. Lee, Buck Cannon re-joins his unit just in time for the three day battle at Gettysburg. How could he know a ten-year-old child would change his life and his future forever?
