Book Description

Knowles is a fast moving, action packed western adventure. When a small town sheriff is gunned down in the street by the murderous Hays gang, everyone in Reliant looks the other way except for Knowles. Johnny Knowles is determined to track down and bring the killers of the man he considered to be his father to justice, come what may.

But this story is not just about seeking revenge. It is also about helping others and finding true love. The whole panorama of the era unfolds before you, as you follow along with Knowles in a surprise twist to the final showdown.

If you enjoyed this story, you may also enjoy Kenneth's sequel "Saving Billy."

5.0 out of 5 stars Knowles-An entertaining and well-written novel September 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author of this book does what every good writer should do. He takes us into the interior life of the protagonist. The reader is transported into Johnny Knowles' world and learns to understand the struggles that Johnny experiences on his journey to develop into the "good man" his mother had begged him to become. Along the way, the reader is treated to adventure and drama that makes for exciting reading.

I recommend this book, even for those who do not normally read westerns. This novel has action, good character development, and sharp dialogue. If you enjoy those elements of good writing, you will enjoy this book.

Very well written old- time Western. Nicely developed hero. Good story. Lots of gunplay and other action. Especially gritty in places.

5.0 out of 5 stars LIVELY AND WELL RESEARCHED! September 27, 2012
By Nat
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Each character comes alive as this novel moves from boyhood to manhood. Knowles never loses sight of his main objective. The author has done his research well. Every geographical area is well depicted, even distinct flowers. The author paints a vivid picture of scenes such as a cattle stampede or an ambush with his words. Very enjoyable! I am looking forward to meeting Johnny Knowles again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyed it September 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a well written account of some of the lesser written about parts of the old west. It makes you wonder how anyone survived parts of New Orleans. Great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a surprise! June 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not a fan of western novels, Zane Gray, etc. But I got a chance to get this book for my kindle for free, and for some reason it caught my eye. What a pleasant surprise it turned out to be. Simple, straightforward and to the point, like the main character. But a good plot and interesting details. Well worth your time.

I liked all the historical elements that were built into the story from East Texas to New Orleans, then all the way back to West Texas.

More About the Author

While an English major at college, I wrote a column which was published weekly. I have enjoyed writing ever since. Los Angeles in the forties and the old West are eras which lend themselves to tales of romance, courage, and fast paced adventure. Many of the places that I write about are places that I have either traveled through or actually lived in.

I try to make my works richly accurate. I want to provide you with an entertaining and fun read which you enjoy.
