It had escaped lightening and wildfire. And drought, the long-time enemy of California in a physical and human sense, had not claimed it as a victim. Its roots, yearning for water, spider-webbed and radiated down and outward from its base. Every precious vein of water, great or small, was desired and needed. Like an appendage stretched to its limits, the roots were lifelines; connections between the earth and the sky. Life perpetuated. Bark like armor. Rustling leaves in a cool breeze—greens, and browns, and greys. And blood. The year was 1854. At this moment, the liquid seeping into the ground at the base of the tree was blood that belonged to Daniel Vance. Above him, swaying in the gentle breeze as if macabre fruit, was the lifeless body of a man strung-up by his neck."

This is an excerpt from the first book in my series centered around the California Gold Rush. Give it a look. :-)
