“Maley’s descriptions of the difficulties faced by a young boy on the run in strange surroundings, as well as his well-researched political context, make the book a compelling and thought-provoking read.”- G. Ganong


After writing a screenplay set in “bleeding Kansas” of the 1850s, Maley’s readers all asked to know more about one of the minor characters, a runaway slave boy.

Maley is a confirmed flatlander. He and his wife live in Oklahoma. When he has his dobber down, he likes to spend time up home in the Flint Hills of Kansas, which helped inspire the story Three Links of Chain!
