Description - Two In The Field by Darryl Brock

Modern-day reporter Sam Fowler, hero of "If I Never Get Back", manages to break into the past once again - but now it is 1875, and America is a darker place, gripped in economic depression. Again he falls in with ballplayers, but this time spins off on his own, seeking the whereabouts of Cait, the woman he loves. His knight-like quest, bristling with hazards, causes him to ride the rails with tramps, deal with starving miners and the desperate Molly Maguires, work in a Saratoga casino, venture out onto the Nebraska prairies, and finally head into the Black Hills accompanied by Cait, a former slave and a Sioux guide, to face the ultimate reckoning of his life. In the midst of all this, Sam attempts to deal with his conflicted conscience over leaving his two daughters behind in his other life. Again we meet historic characters: Twain, George Armstrong Custer, Crazy Horse and star ballplayers of the day. At the end, Sam finds his true home and family.
