Authors Butsch and Coletti's passion for their local historical hero is one that is both commendable and refreshing.

Aaron Dwight Stevens, a tumultuous, ill tempered, zealous and noble, young man is an American Hero often overlooked. Through his 29 full years, Dwight Stevens acted on his convictions, adventured near and far, and ultimately, woke the nation up to the start of a new chapter in America’s history- The end of slavery.
Through historical facts and fictional flare authors Butsch and Coletti resurrect the story of a true 1800s adventurist and legend. In this gripping novel readers will enjoy the realistic tales of Dwight Steven’s journey through the War against Mexico, the Dragoons, Bloody Kansas, the love of two women, and the destined conclusion at Harper’s Ferry. Paired with the emotional credence of Dwight Steven’s beliefs, and the unwavering devotion of his fellow abolitionists, A Journey to the Gallows brings history to life in the most entertaining way.
