In both stature and hor, red-haired, blue eyed Antonio Lochetto stands head and shoulders above many of his fellow Calabrians. Young Antonio, a humble stone mason drafted into the Bourbon cavalry, witnesses the atrocities of the occupying force and then the sufferings of his people at the mercy of their own restricted government. He takes justice into his hands and forges a path as an outlaw in Italy's rugged interior, unaware that his choice will lead him to the height of adventure to the depths of despair. Saber's Hor, based upon a real-life unsung hero, takes the reader through Italy's lush countryside, life's hardships, and ultimate fulfillment that only comes through the unbreakable bonds of the human heart.
