The Wildcatters (The Making of America, Book 21)
The big man was strong and wily --but his son had the edge in anger
"He wants to fight you, Pa," young Jake Faust warned.
Big John Faust was taking his ease outdoors in the sun with his youthful wife, Bryna, as his two sons arrived, Ernie with fire in his eyes.
"Ernie, this is crazy," Bryna said, green eyes widening. "You can't fight your father. He loves you."
Ernie pointed at Bryna's stomach. "That should have been my child."
John Faust began to unbutton his shirt. "He's been spoiling for this fight for a long time, and we might as well get it over with. Right, Ernie boy?"
"I'm no boy," Ernie Faust said. "I'm a better man than you are ... I don't intercept other people's letters so as to steal their woman."
Big John shook his head. "Never happened. But let's get on with it."
The combatants circled briefly, swapped exploratory punches--and then the first hammer-blow landed. It was to be a battle of hitters, a fight to the finish, until one battered the other into the ground for the last time.
