Barstone is a novel about twin brothers from South Alabama who struggle to keep what is rightfully theirs during a time in history when raw nerve and a fast gun is the law of the land.
The sounds of the battle between the north and the South are now silent over the country. War's smoke has long since dissipated, but the memories of war burned with an unquenchable fire in the minds of the men who survived.
Clay and Benny Founder, veterans of the Confederacy are farmers and mule breeders in South Alabama. They inherit a ranch named Barstone located in West Texas. They must leave their beloved war-torn South Land and venture west into unsettled and wild terrains inhabited by bands of outlaws, blood thirsty Indians and unscrupulous bankers.
Two brothers who only want peace must fight the battle of their lives before even reaching their inheritance. If they successfully arrive at their ranch, the question is, "Can they keep it?"
