Don Ross is a retired Springboro High School English teacher and coach. He has written a variety of venues for over 50 years, as a sports editor, columnist, and feature writer for newspapers and magazines in southern and central Ohio.
Trails depicts the turbulent decades from 1830-1870, a period of painful growth on the American Frontier, rife with tragedy and desperation, yet tantalizing in promise and new beginnings. Incidents of hope and courage mingle with dynamics so daunting that many strong men are reduced to pawns of fate and circumstance. The characters struggle through the impacts of historical events, leading to a bloody denouncement on the streets of Abilene, Kansas, America's first "cow town."
