Ghosts of the Green Swamp A Cracker Western
by Lee Gramling

It’s 1877 and Tate on his faithful Ole Roan sets out into the vast and ominous swampland west of Orlando. He doesn’t get far before he’s waylaid and left for dead by some henchmen sent by the ruthless and mysterious Mr. Ravenant. But then Tate meets up with the odd and ornery little bald “perfessor” named Monk, who sells elixirs from his odd contraption of a wagon, which features a rattling, banging collection of pans and kettles as well as “music” from a mechanical box with pipes, drums, chimes and a banjo. Tate and Monk — and an odd assortment of other characters — pursue Tate’s attackers into the heart of the Green Swamp, where amid the moss-draped cypress looming in the murky waters that have seemingly swallowed up previous travelers, they meet up with the evil forces behind the local legends of the ghosts and witches of the swamp. This Cracker Western will have your spine tingling as it races on to the all-out showdown at the end.

"Like taking a wild ride on Tate Barkley's roan horse through a dense swamp -- there's never a dull moment." -- Patrick Smith
