The time is 1868. Three short years after the awful destruction caused by the war. The place is the Kansas-Missouri border. A land savaged by years of bloody fighting. Two men share a common past. First as boys riding for the famed Pony Express; then as soldiers bravely serving opposing sides in battle. One blue. One gray. When the war was over, they each sought new lives. One became the sheriff of Lawrence, Kansas. He is a good, though lonely, man who sought peace in troubling times. The other, a rebel from Missouri, now a hired gun, who found himself a wanted man, accused of terrible crimes. Destiny brings them together again in THE GODLESS MEN as their lives play out against a backdrop of the post-war exploitation of the West. Railroads rule the day as the seemingly endless prairie becomes more civilized, driving the Indians further from their ancestral homes, while slaughtering the vast herds of wild buffalo. Moneyed and greedy men are everywhere. They pull the strings and call the shots. Amidst such volatile days, can a sheriff find contentment in the law and can an outlaw find solace running from it? Only time and fate will tell.
