First Paragraph

Cass Wakefield was born in a double-pen log cabin just at break of day, and before he was twenty minutes old, he was almost thrown away with the bedclothes. The midwife, Queenola Divine, heard him squalling, however, and so it was that Cass, blue-faced and complaining, was untangled from the wad of bloody sheets and saved for further adventures.

- From The Judas Field: A Novel of the Civil War by Howard Bahr
