Adam's Daughters reminded me of one of my favorite books, The Yearling by Marjorie Kennan Rawlings - hardship, drama, survival, compassion, and historical relevance. --Harry M. Fife, Jr., Past President, Texas Society of the American Revolution
This is a book you can really sink your teeth into! Engaging characters and a fascinating story make the world of Adam's Daughters lift right off the pages and into your heart. --Karen Roth, Author of Found on 16th Avenue and My Portion Forever
About the Author
David Bowles has always been interested in history and genealogy. He started writing stories of his family to ensure that his descendants had accurate records of their history, using his imagination and creativity to fill in the gaps of what might have happened when the details weren't available. He created dialogue and scenes to add true life drama to the Westward Sagas from colonial days to the settlement of the West to pass on his family's storytelling legacy.

Bowles' style would appeal to a variety of readers. He includes sufficient historical background and intrigue to compel your interest, while at the same time he retells these very real and very human family stories in an easy and light-hearted way that is charming and delightful.
I am not a member of this family, nor even an American either. Yet I would recommend this book to anyone looking to spend several pleasurable hours, whether you are travelling or just "chilling out".
Looking forward to the 3rd book in the Westward Sagas series ......
With one of the daughters, Peggy, proving successful at professions including fur broker, self-trained physician, and schoolteacher, this forward-thinking family manages to play out their lives on the frontier in a series of dramatic incidents. Some of the attitudes seem more modern and politically correct than would have been likely for the times, but not gratingly so.
The author deftly weaves together details that might be unfamiliar to readers, such as the Celtic heritage of the Appalachians as exhibited in mountain dulcimer music. The original cover art is beautiful and perfectly captures the mood and flavor of this novel, which also has several helpful components discussing the factual basis of the work and providing a resource list, in addition to a cast of characters.
