The Jayhawker Cleveland: Phantom Horseman of the Prairie!
A legend in his own time, Marshall Cleveland rode into Leavenworth alone in June, 1861 to view his own “Wanted Dead or Alive” poster. No one in that town of 12,000 inhabitants, nor any soldiers from Fort Leavenworth, attempted to collect the reward, and Cleveland rode slowly out of town.
The Free State of Kansas and the slave state of Missouri are the backdrop of this tale of heroic deeds and fatal mistakes. David Hann takes the reader on a trail ride through a gritty time in the American West when people were pitted against each other and some had to choose sides in a life-and-death battle of ideas.
“Clawed from the dust and given breath, The Jayhawker Cleveland presents an historic figure now largely forgotten who grew from a naive youth to a man of ruthless courage fit to a violent age. Fast paced and gripping, the story takes you to the bloody border of Kansas and Missouri at the outbreak of the Civil War. No doubt our hero, Marshall Cleveland, would be pleased by his dramatic portrayal herein.”
—Melvin Litton, author of Caspion, I Joaquin, Geminga, The Kansas Murder Trilogy
