Walk the Shadow Trail
To Walk the Shadow Trail means to lead a life of pain and sorrow, to be deprived and alone forever... Many men had come to America to escape the law, and Baron Karl Augustus Dietrich Wilhelm von Brandt was no different, although he was fleeing his fathers crimes and not his own. When the ranch he buys in Wolf Creek, Nebraska, turns out to be little more than a sand dune, Will is befriended by Johnny Moon, a half-Pawnee neer-do-well. Working together, the impoverished German noble and the half-breed turn Wills property into a thriving ranch. It is Wills marriage to Silent Summer Woman, daughter of a local Pawnee chief which drives the first wedge between them, for Johnny Moon has a secret, and once its discovered, it will destroy the bond between the two friends forever.
