Rawlins, No Longer Young

Book #1 of The Rawlins Series:  Rawlins, No Longer Young is an exciting historical western novel set against the backdrop of the American Civil War and the American West. 

Virgil Rawlins is left without family or friends as he is swept into the maelstrom that encompasses the last years of the American Civil War. Lost in a world of brutality and inhumanity, the teenaged Rawlins matures—as did many of the Wild West’s first outlaws—with revenge and hatred as his only motivations.

He heads westward before the war’s end, making his way to the town of Independence, Missouri and the Oregon Trail, but along the way he meets the remarkably beautiful Sarah McCaskey and learns that the rights and wrongs in his life cannot be defined simply as blue and gray.

When Sarah tells Rawlins of her loss to Confederate guerrilla Bloody Bill Anderson, Rawlins begins to question his own assumptions. Joining a wagon train as a hunter/scout, he heads westward into the raging Indian War of 1865. Along the way he earns a reputation as a respected gunfighter and must finally decide what kind of man he will be—outlaw, lawman, or perhaps, neither.

Rawlins, No Longer Young is guaranteed to stir debate and enlighten readers with the experiences of these turbulent years as seen through the eyes of a young Confederate soldier.

Coming Soon: Rawlins, Last Ride to Montana, the Third Book of the Historical Western Fiction Series, The Rawlins Trilogy.

I am hoping to have the final book of the Rawlins Trilogy, Rawlins Last Ride to Montana, out by late January. This historical western series has so far received almost entirely positive reviews. For those who have read the first two books, here’s a summary of this third book:

Rawlins Rides into The Sunset

Virgil and Sarah Rawlins are taking a journey back east, and Virgil is buying cattle in Abilene, Kansas to drive north through the Big Horn River Valley into the Montana Territory. The story includes a tumultuous journey down the Yellowstone and Missouri Rivers to Council Bluffs, Iowa. From there they take a train eastward to St. Louis. Suffice to say it is an adventurous and eventful trip that leaves you wondering if Rawlins won’t be making the last ride to Montana alone. I could go into more, but don’t want to spoil the story for you.

If you haven’t tried the Rawlins Trilogy, I hope you will. I don’t believe you will be disappointed.
