Thomas Jefferson
“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency first by inflation then by deflation the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered... I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies... The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs.”
Thomas Jefferson

The Reckoning (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:32PM
Description: A coming-of-age Western adventure of greed, violence and retribution, THE RECKONING centers on the clash between a rugged old rancher and a dangerous, young Irish street thug. The novel ranges from the rough streets of early 20th-century Manhattan to the vast expanses and treacherous intrigues of life in Wyoming cattle country. Tom Callaghan, 19, agrees reluctantly to leave New York for Wyoming to avoid a stretch in Sing Sing prison — accompanied by Will Sherman, the same man he assaulted. At Sherman's Box T ranch in the Wind River basin, Tom immediately clashes with Will's headstrong daughter, Ellen, who views Tom as the usurper of her late brother's place. She is consumed with guilt over her role in her younger brother's death by the untamed black stallion, Caliban. And Tom quickly finds himself facing the enemies of his benefactor, Will Sherman, in a deadly reckoning. McLain’s screenplay, based on his novel, was a finalist in the international Writer’s Digest Screenwriting Competition.
