About the Book

“With Civil War closing in, a small horse drawn circus travels the
southeastern United States in a time when there was no electricity, no
paved roads, few bridges and poor directions between towns. Braving
bad weather, outlaws, and the clouds of war, this is the true story of
one circus family that made that tour. It is a love story of a young girl
who was a bare back rider with the circus, and the young man who
joined the circus just to be near her. It is also the story of a black man
who joined the circus to search for his sister who was a slave. It is the
story of lifetime friendships that bonded men from the North and
South, black and white, in a love for each other that transcended the
horror of approaching war.
Based on characters who were there, and events that actually happened,
this book is at once a love story and great adventure. This is the story
of a two and a half year long, six thousand mile adventure, and the
people who were there.”
