Local author and journalist Darryl Levings discusses his new novel, Saddle the Pale Horse: A Novel of the Invasion of Missouri, on Sunday, November 13, 2011, at 2 p.m. at the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.
Saddle the Pale Horse is a work of historical fiction published by Star Books that follows Price's Raid in 1864 from the day confederate forces crossed the border from Arkansas to the battles of 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.
