I did not finish this book.

It is July 4, 1876 and Jeremiah McKinley is looking forward to a day of Centennial Independence Day celebration in Sonoma, California.However, a boy shows up at his doorstep claiming to be Jeremiah's deceased father, Daniel. Then, Jeremiah receives a strange message of warning.

The story takes place on this one day however there are a lot of flashbacks that are from as far back as 1831. Jeremiah reflects on his youth and all the violence that his family and others endured moving to the West.

The part of the story taking part on the present day, July 4, 1876 was the best part of the book, IMO. I don't know how writing about the wild west could be written..here.)
