William McChesney, a veteran and entrepreneur, has completed his new book “YOU MUST KILL HIM FIRST”: a historical tale about General Sam Houston who was a close friend of the governor of Tennessee and was instrumental in getting the Waco, Texas Rangers special consideration for assignment to a new cavalry unit being formed at that exact time. This is a portrayal of the exploits of that unit, the Third Tennessee under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Bedford Forrest.

According to McChesney, “After retiring (I) tried to settle into the life we all hope for, but it didn’t take long for boredom to grab hold as reading, gardening, and traveling wasn’t getting it done for him. Then, the idea for a book got into (my) head and (I) started writing. (I) was always interested in our history with the trials and tribulations of our immigrants in the forefront. It was natural for (me) to create fictional accounts of people living in real history and in real places. This is (my) sixth book, and with any luck, this won’t be the last as the ideas for more keep coming.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, William McChesney’s riveting work begins in the early months of 1861 during a routine patrol along the Red River by a detachment of rangers working out of Waco, Texas. Their primary duty is to keep Indians on the other side of the river and out of Texas. They’re obligated to maintain the safety of the settlers and this responsibility is sacred to them.
Thaddeus Thorndike is the ranger captain leading this patrol and has been a ranger all of his adult life. His father served as a ranger captain before him and his brother is currently in overall charge of the Waco detachment. Everything is about to change however. Upon returning home from their extended patrol, they all discover that the civil war had begun and that Texans would be called on to serve the Southern cause. These men decided to serve, but not as individuals being drafted, but as a unit of highly trained horse soldiers or cavalry, and in order to do that, they must go to Tennessee in force prior to receiving draft notices.

Readers who wish to experience this intriguing work can purchase “YOU MUST KILL HIM FIRST” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Kobo, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
