The GallowsmanBook - 1998
The life Ben Woolard is leaving behind is filled with ghosts and pain. When he lost his wife and children, he took to the bottle so hard he almost couldn't find his way back. And his career as a Union spy during the war still doesn't sit well with him, even if the man sent to the gallows by his testimony was a murderer. But now Ben has sobered up and moved west to Colorado. But sometimes the past won't lie still. And, as Ben learns when folks start telling him that the man he saw hanged is alive and in town--sometimes those ghosts come back.
