Old Nathan

Old Nathan is a backwoodsman in the Appalachia of an older era saturated with mysterious powers—of which he has quite a few himself.

He and his bull Spanish King put to rest a monster’s ghost for the sake of a youngster in love. That ghost is not the only one he has to deal with, for many ghosts are filled with greed.

Old Nathan has to deal with thieves and bullies and witches, too, as well as the enmity of a powerful clan. He’s not the only one with powers in the region, although he may be the most cunning.

He’ll give it all up, though, for a new chance at life—which may be coming his way.
