Morkan's Quarry: Civil War novel set in Springfield, Missouri, published by the University of Arkansas Press. Steve Yates, whose previous fiction has been published in the Missouri Review and other venues, makes he debut as a novelist with Morkan's Quarry. From the University of Arkansas Press catalogue: "In 1861, the Civil War severs Michael Morkan from everything he loves and all that defines him -- from his son, Leighton; from his love, Cora Slade; and from the quarry he owns in Springfield, Missouri. Forced to give his black powder to the Missouri State Guard, he finds himself indelibly labeled a rebel traitor and is imprisoned in St. Louis. Back in the Ozarks, Leighton joins the Federal Home Guards in hopes of paroling his father. When Leighton finally frees him, the two are pitched in a last gambit for their quarry and for the legacy of the name Morkan."
