“AMERICA AT ITS BEST” This Historical Western Fiction follows the true story of the town of Forest City, Iowa, receiving a Spanish-American War cannon from the United States Government in the year 1899 and some of the events surrounding actual citizens of Forest City from 1858-1899. The story combines some of the history of the settling of the Indian Territory and of Winnebago County, Iowa. U.S. Marshal Clay Owen, who is from the Indian Territory, takes the train to Mare Inland in California to pick up a cannon that was captured during the Spanish-American War and transport it by train to PuckerBrush (now called, Forest City, Iowa). A thirteen-year-old boy named Dakota, who is of mixed blood, accompanies him. While in Iowa, they inquire about Dakota's great-grandparents who had lived in Puckerbrush. It tells the heart warming story of a brother's search for his twin sister, who was captured by the Indians in 1867 and his dedication to her, postponing any life for himself.
