Synopsis

Frederick Manfred's, "The King of Spades" is the last novel of the five-part series, "The Buckskin Man Tales." The west, family, and tragedy are all apart of Manfred's novel, which he said was the hardest to write. As a writer, Manfred soon learned his interests were with themes and topics as opposed to writing about history.
