AD1869—He next appeared in the town of Sundance*, Wyoming Territory, located in the shadow of the Devil’s Tower and it is there he came across yet another expelled minor god, named Schwärzentaube.
What he didn’t know, but would soon learn…
*Located in the northeast corner of Wyoming, Sundance (established in 1875) is situated along the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountain range in the heart of the Wyoming Black Hills. Local terrain varies from tall grass prairie to ponderosa pine covered mountains.

“What about the rest of the town?” Chris asked Hiram.
“The rest of the town is as it was originally developed—and that has historic significance as well.”
“I wonder how soon we’ll be called back to the past.”
