1890s Badger, Missouri, a Midwestern town where tolerance, economic equality, and efficient law and order do not exist.
Through the growing pains of post-Civil War civilization, Badger citizens struggle to find their way. Edgar Tinsley, the secluded blacksmith, combats the blurry line between fantasy and reality. Nathaniel Walcott, the disenfranchised son of a former slave, attempts to provide for his family in an unfavorable society. Stanley Ashgrove, the privileged son of a local robber baron, wary of the blood-soaked legacy of his father, desires his own path. Tangon Baltimore, the town’s constable, wrestles with doing the easy thing or doing the right thing. And James Francis, orphaned private detective, searches for the truth in his muddled past.
When these personalities collide, lies, racism, manipulation, and dark secrets will confuse the already tangled web of their lives. Fate connects them all, and Fate will decide their reckoning.
Are not we all just a house of badgers, always biting, clawing, and fighting amongst ourselves?
