Description

In this sequel to the best-selling If I Never Get Back, Sam Fowler manages to break into the past once again—but this time it’s 1875. Gripped by an economic depression, America is a darker place. Again Sam falls in with ballplayers, but spins off on his own seeking the whereabouts of Caitlin, the woman he loves. His knight-like, hazardous quest forces him to ride the rails with tramps, deal with starving miners and the desperate Molly Maguires, work in a Saratoga casino, and venture into the Nebraska prairies. In the end, Sam will have to head into the Black Hills accompanied by Cait, a former slave, and a Sioux guide to face the ultimate reckoning of his life. Like its predecessor, Two in the Field combines authentic research (including accurate details of early baseball), a narrative filled with twists and turns, and memorable characters in a white-knuckle ride through a dramatic period of American history.
