There the young Dominique was first called Kyle by his father to protect his real identity. Later, he took the last name of the plantation owner and was subsequently known as Kyle Slaughter. After four years, Kyle’s father was killed by a train, and Kyle executed his planned escape from the plantation. He created several diversions and escaped during the confusion into the night taking only a little food. A bounty was immediately placed on his head, and, as time passed, the bounty grew quite large. It grew even larger as rumors spread that Kyle had knowledge of vast treasure troves hidden by his ancestors who were seagoing pirates. He was pursued by slave catchers, by bounty hunters, by reward seeking posses, and by the governments of both the Northern and the Southern States who desired the riches of the hidden treasures for their war chests. Most brutal of all of his pursuers were Shingos, the Heathen, and his spiritual advisor Apotay, who led a huge band of American Indians of several tribes. The Pursuit of Kyle Slaughter begins in Alabama, continues in a series of intense conflicts across the South, and ends in the sun-scorched wasteland of the Sonora Desert in Arizona.
“The Pursuit of Kyle Slaughter” is the first publication in a multi-volume epic.
