Dawn Of The Century (The American Chronicles Book 1)
by Robert Vaughan
In Volume One of The American Chronicles, Robert Vaughan panoramically
evokes America at the beginning of the Twentieth Century, poised on the
brink of greatness and fraught with the tumult of rapid change.
time of robber-baron industrialists and rapid territorial expansion both
at home and abroad, the new music called “ragtime” is the soundtrack
for a confident nation of ambitious dreamers.
It is 1904 and the
nation’s eyes are on the St. Louis World's Fair, which features an
astounding variety of modern marvels. The enormous exhibition brings
together the best minds the country has to offer, each of them with
something to lose and opportunities to seize: Bob Canfield, a young and
wealthy landowner who is willing to risk his honor and his fortune to
make a profit out of the desert; Eric Twainbough, a solitary young
cowboy riding the rails East from Wyoming, innocently bringing disaster
with him; Terry Perkins, a reporter desperate to get the scoop on the
story in St. Louis; Connie Bateman, one of the politically conscious new
women fighting for freedom, bravely defending their right to equality.
