Burke, James Lee  
Wayfaring Stranger
1934: A confrontation with Bonnie and Clyde ends with young Weldon Holland putting a bullet through the rear window of their stolen car. 1944: Second Lieutenant Weldon Holland and Sergeant Hershel Pine survive the Battle of the Bulge, and find Rosita Lowenstein hiding in a deserted Nazi death camp. Eventually, Weldon and Rosita marry, and return to Texas along with Hershel. There, they enter the domain of jackals known as the oil business. They meet Roy Wiseheart - a former Marine aviator haunted with guilt for deserting his squadron leader over the South Pacific - and Roy's wife Clara, a vicious anti-Semite who is determined to make Weldon and Rosita's life a nightmare. It will be the frontier justice upheld by Weldon's grandfather, lawman Hackberry Holland, and the legendary antics of Bonnie and Clyde, that shape Weldon's plans for saving his family from the evil lurking in peacetime America.
