Paul Driscoll has decided that he is fed up with the way the world has turned out. Wars, disease, bombings—it’s all too much to handle. Luckily for Driscoll, he has access to a time machine. But when he attempts to go back in time to change historical events, he finds that nothing works. He cannot change the course of history. It is because of this that he decides to live out the rest of his life in another time—1881. But when he realizes a horrific event is about to occur, can he stop it?
