Even non-Native Texicans will be hooked by Mike Engleman's "Finding Home", his first in a series of six books detailing life on the South Texas frontier when Tejas was a Mexican state. This introduction to Lawes Raiders is indeed an epic saga, and I can't wait to read the next! Move over, "Lonesome Dove" - you've got competition.

As a native south-Texan, familiar with south Texas history and a descendant of an influential early Texican family, I started reading Mike Engleman's "Finding Home" history novel with much anticipation. I was not disappointed. The historical and geographic references brought it home, even in its pre-development setting. And its vivid descriptions of frontier life, dangers, and violence of the times not long after the Civil War gave this old "Valley Rat" (Rio Grande Valley resident) a good feel for what my predecessors must have experienced in those days. The D.A. Lawes recollections of his experiences is a great way for me to be there, too. Thanks, Mike. Keep 'em coming!

I found the story of Daryl and Barrel very interesting.....even with Daryl's horrific grammar. As a native Texan I particularly enjoyed the historic value of this book. Looking forward to Book Two!

This was an excellent tale about a man who lived the hard life during Texas' formative years. The characters were well developed and believable, and the story was a good read! I look forward to the MOVIE!!

Mike Engleman once again pulls the reader in from page 1 and never lets up. His grasp of Texana, Texas History and fascinating charters makes his latest a must read.

I have been an admirer of Mike Engleman's talents for years since he was an editorial writer for the Dallas Morning News in the 1960's. So glad to see that he has expanded his horizons and become the inevitable novelist with aspirations that have taken him to another level! Hear, hear, Mr. Engleman! Onward and upward with your interests in Texas history!

Finding Home is a fascinating wild west chronicle that follows events in the lives of two young men, Daryl Aaron Lawes and Dewayne Johnston Lotto, from a Tennessee farm, through New Orleans and on to Texas to join the Texas Rangers in the rough and lawless 1800's.
Mr. Engleman weaves his exceptional writing skills and love of South Texas' history in a captivating and fast-moving tale of Texas Rangers battling lawless sheriffs, feuding families, and Mexican cattle rustlers. The reader will be enchanted by the story's heros and yet shocked by violence of the times-while being provided a life-sized vision of hardscrabble Ranger life.
An epic of a fascinating era!
