Local author and journalist Darryl Levings discusses his new book, a work of historical fiction that follows Price’s Raid in 1864 from the day forces crossed the border from Arkansas
to clashes at Westport and Mine Creek.

This was Missouri in 1864: Teenaged bushwhackers rode and killed with Jesse James, William Clarke Quantrill, and Bloody Bill Anderson; a uniform was no guarantee of a soldier’s allegiance; and officers and men often looked the other way when anyone mentioned the law. Co-sponsored by Star Books.
