About Barbours Cut

If Clyde Barbour had his way in 1893 at 19 years of age, he would be off his father’s flatboat and in college, but his father still needed his help with the family trading business drifting down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers; even so, he was able to propel himself to building thriving enterprises with operations not only in the U.S. but also in Europe and Mexico.

Barbours Cut is based on Clyde’s story. Later known as Captain Clyde Barbour, he lived a life of adventure and intrigue, including a public horsewhipping, a near-deadly run-in with Pancho Villa (the Mexican revolutionary), a dalliance with a glamorous French opera singer, and a lifelong struggle to protect and uplift the lives of both his serial-philanderer brother and his alcoholic father.
