The Silver Medallion
by James D. Clark

Ever since he was 13 years, Kirby Kearns, a United States Marshal, has had in his possession a box that is over 100 years old. From the lips of his dying father, he was told to guard it with his life. The box is to be opened by the 5th generation grandson, and he is to be named Kirby Kearns. No one knows what the box contain, only that it will change the lives of those who open it and possess it contents. What powers are held inside of the wood box, sealed with wax? Is the town of Bensonville a real town? Are its residents real people, or are they spirits from another world there to fulfill the wishes of a higher power? Bensonville was no different than any other Western town of the 1800s. The only law some men knew was that of a smoking gun. The remains of those folks lie on Boot Hill at the end of town. Read how the marshal renders his own brand of law and order to those who would dare go against him. Watch as the Angel of Death makes his way into town and seeks out those that are not expecting him so soon. As the story of the Silver Medallion unfolds through the preceding pages remember the Lord works in mysterious way.
