Legend. Outcast. Free Man.The natural enemy of every free man is his own government . . . He has gone by many names during his long life. Heretic. Rebel. Ransom. Today he is called Cantrell. A beleaguered man of awesome strength and extraordinary power, he is the last bastion of rugged individualism in a world where justice and liberty can no longer protect men like him. . . . and the natural enemy of every government is a free man. After centuries spent fighting the forces of evil and oppression, he has come to this small town in Arkansas to live in peace. But peace is nowhere to be found. Violent hate crimes tear the land apart. An ancient enemy from his distant past pits brother against brother. And the future of the free world rests with him, the lone wolf who can never be truly free now that he has become the hunted once again.
