Product Description

Product Description

Oregon, 1873. Michael Barncho is charged with the murder of an American general. He and his fellow conspirators face a military tribunal at Fort Klamath. The Nation is crying out for revenge. Found guilty, the death sentence is a formality. Chained together the condemned men are led to the gallows, but Barncho survives in the most bizarre fashion. Dubbed "The Modoc Kid" he is hunted, hated and feared, as Fate leads him along a trail of ordeal and murder that will end with a life-sentence in the fog-bound hell-hole called Alcatraz, the notorious prison in San Fransisco Harbour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 11 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Once again Mark Bannerman has written a startlingly good story, against an accurate historical background. His main character, Brancho, captures your heart right from the beginning, and it is difficult to put the book down before discovering what fate eventually has in store for him. Highly recommended.

Fascinating story told in narrative and first person form. It is a compelling story about the situation, thoughts and travails of a young man caught up in the aftermath of the Modoc struggle for freedom. It kept my attention.
