       Additional Information  
     
      Prophet's Way is a historical fantasy about a decimated Civil War unit which garrisons a hidden river edge redoubt. A replacement arrives who claims to have been sent by God. The story highlights the Confederate sergeant who with the urging of the prophet will consider a political career.
    It is the story of the deep reverence of the southern people for the land and is told with humility and understanding. Young Joshua personifies the heroic southern soldier who is trying to rationalize duty with scripture.

    Prophet under a flag of truce revels to both the blue and gray alike the inevitable horrors to follow from the formation of a Union. There in the moonlit meadow, Sgt. Yancey Young realizes that he has been called to be a prophet to his people and help guide them through reconstruction.

    He will come to realize that he fights an enemy unlike any he has faced before--a foe more resilient, more tenacious, even more perplexing than he can imagine: a demeaning, ravenous monster named PROGRESS.
