A man haunted by the loss of his son and wife to a band of rogue Northern soldiers during the Civil War, Josey Wales rides off with a group of Confederate militia to avenge their deaths. At war’s end, with little to live for, save the memory of his dead family, Wales refuses to surrender to the Northern Army, and becomes a fugitive pursued by bounty hunters. A mix of traditional and modern genre westerns, Josey Wales is the engaging tale of an anti-hero with one foot on each side of the law (Klaus Ming April 2016).
