"We pierced the thick, black veil of the fever fires and entered hell."

As the guns fell silent at Appomattox the gods were already shaping the next battlefield. No one in Memphis realized the target would be narrowed this time to eight square miles overlooking the Mississippi.

This second book in the ten-part Your Winding Daybreak Ways series begins where author Gary Bargatze’s debut novel, Warfield, leaves off. Thomas has survived the Civil War and the gods’ war on his family; he has been graduated from the university; and he is now happily on his way to Memphis to teach at the prestigious Westminster Academy. But unbeknownst to Thomas he is about to enter an even more punishing circle of hell.

This historically accurate, underreported telling of the horrific yellow fever epidemics of the 1870s explores race, unspeakable loss and the courage of African-Americans who sped toward death to serve as nurses, undertakers and police as the masses fled Memphis in panic.

 

Gary Bargatze is the author of Warfield, Happy Hollow, Hurricane Creek, and Hollow Rock, the first four novels in his ten-part fictional series, Your Winding Daybreak Ways, comprised of a prologue, epilogue, seven novels and a novella. Mr. Bargatze divides his time between rural Maryland and the Berkshires of Massachusetts.

"They're all dreamers, Lil' Jim, with an unshakable belief that their luck will change."

When Lil’ Jim moved back to Memphis, the children stopped coming by to play. While he blamed his isolation on religion, everyone else knew it had everything to do with money, politics, and race.

This third book in the ten-part Your Winding Daybreak Ways series begins where author Gary Bargatze’s second novel, Happy Hollow, leaves off. Lil’ Jim is living with his Uncle Aaron and attending a segregated grammar school. The principal is a true visionary, instilling “life skills” in his African-American students—teaching them to envision a brighter future.

Hurricane Creek depicts the rise of a biracial orphan from the Memphis rail yards to the doorstep of the governor’s mansion in Nashville. The novel follows the young boy’s transformation from “Lil’ Jim” to “Hurricane Jim”—from hobo to West Point cadet; from military officer to entrepreneur; and from wealthy businessman to skilled politician.

Gary Bargatze is the author of Warfield, Happy Hollow, Hurricane Creek, and Hollow Rock, the first four novels in his ten-part fictional series, Your Winding Daybreak Ways, comprised of a prologue, epilogue, seven novels and a novella.

Todd steams into Memphis just as the blues begin oozing up out of the juke joints into the white establishments lining Beale Street. During the next week he seeks out the latest sounds in the honky-tonks and gentlemen's clubs. But after hearing the ragged, personal lyrics of a lone guitarist sitting in a dimly lit corner of a squalid speakeasy, Todd knows now how he wants to spend the rest of his life—writing songs, riding the circuit, and playing the blues.

Sad to say, Todd soon learns “life has a way of tearing up track and bending the rails.”

This fourth book in the ten-part Your Winding Daybreak Ways series begins where author Gary Bargatze’s third novel, Hurricane Creek, leaves off. It follows this frustrated bluesman’s remarkable journey of survival and resourcefulness, as he becomes a key player in the birth of jazz, the mutual fund industry, broadcast evangelism, and global philanthropy.

When Andrew returns to his Taylor family roots in Magnolia County, Tennessee, to attend graduate school, he unexpectedly finds himself at the very center of the burgeoning American existentialist movement and facing painful choices of both head and heart. He walks the Pantheon University campus among the giants of the 1950's movement—the novelist, Walter Talley; the sensual poet, Donald Sanders; the avant-garde dramatist, Jeffrey Kline; and Kline’s tempestuous lover, Bianca, the alluring Portuguese poetess. But within months of arriving on campus, Andrew’s association with Bianca threatens to destroy his promising academic career and his relationship with his first love, Catherine. This fifth book in the ten-part Your Winding Daybreak Ways series begins where author Gary Bargatze’s fourth novel, Hollow Rock, leaves off. It follows this young scholar’s decades-long descent into hell and his subsequent heroic climb out seeking professional success and redemption.

This eigth and final book in the Your Winding Daybreak Ways series, the novella, Babylon: A Human Requiem, opens with the English PhD candidate, Kyle, editing his sister, Samantha's completed manuscripts of the seven previous novels in the Your Winding Daybreak Ways series and the unfinished draft of an eighth work tentatively entitled, Babylon: A Human Requiem. The eighth manuscript has remained unfinished because Kyle's sister disappeared ten years earlier without a trace. During the editing process, Kyle becomes convinced the seven completed novels closely parallel his sister's life and hold clues to her disappearance and perhaps to her whereabouts. His investigation leads him from Block Island, Rhode Island, to Williamstown, Massachusetts, and from Washington, D.C. to Maui. Hawaii. As the result of his investigation, Kyle learns disturbing things about his own life; Samantha becomes a character in her own unfinished work; and Kyle, rather than finish editing the drafts for his PhD, is left to complete Babylon and publish the overall encyclopedic narrative as the Your Winding Daybreak Ways series. 

Gary Bargatze is the author of Warfield, Happy Hollow, Hurricane Creek, Hollow Rock, McGill, Cabedelo, and Thunderwood, the seven novels in his critically acclaimed, ten-part fictional series, Your Winding Daybreak Ways, comprised of a prologue, epilogue, seven novels and a novella.
