An American Gaucho

My first Novel has just been released. An historical action novel set in the late 1800's. Captain Robert Murray of the Confederate Army finds himself in a country he feels he no longer belongs to. The South has lost the war, the North the enemy he has been fighting for the last four years is taking over. He's lost his farm, his family and the way of life he knows. Like many Southerners he decides the best thing is to leave. He crosses through Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana finally arriving in New Orleans after confronting Robbers, Rapist and Indians along the way. In New Orleans he meets an Argentine Gaucho who is doing business in New Orleans. The Gaucho encourages him to go back with him to Argentina to start a new life. Murray agrees and joins the Gaucho. The two then embark on an adventure that takes them half way around the world. Fighting robbers, Indians and corrupt soldiers in an action packed story you won't soon forget.
