Editorial Reviews

Review

"G.P. Schultz has polished Kansas City's past and placed it on his mantel like a treasured
antique clock. " Art Brisbane


--Kansas City Star

"Gully Town portrays Kansas City much like a vintage yearbook and offers a rare sense of satisfying completion." Pat Anthony --The Sun Newspapers

"A sincere, old fashioned, sentimental novel that flows as smoothly as the wide Missouri and could well make the charts." Isabel Merriam --Wednesday Magazine

"I really got caught up in Kansas City history. The characters in Gully Town are wonderful."
Kathryn Taylor
--The Potpourri Literary Journal

"With considerable insight and romance - G.P. Schultz has caught the flavor of a robust, thriving, conniving American City of the nineteenth century." Fred Slater --Saint Joseph News-Press/Gazette

From the Inside Flap

In settings ranging from Kansas City's West Bottoms to Quality Hill, you'll follow the lives and fortunes of five very different men, the women they love, and the families they create, in G. P. Schultz's historic saga about the settlement and growth of one of America's great cities.

You'll follow the adventures of Jack and Kevin, two spunky Irish orphans just off the boat and determined to make their fortunes in America. They arrive in Kansas City when it is a rugged town built along mountainous gullies carved in the mud along the Missouri river--thus earning it the name "Gully Town."

For Kevin, early Kansas City affords the opportunity to fulfill his ambitions, to be a newspaper reporter and to pursue his avid interest in women--until the captivating Mary, herself an Irish immigrant, steals his heart.

Jack settles into the business community and his life takes a completely different turn as he helps create the Boss System of politics that continues to dominate the city for half a century.

Red is young man who witnesses the horror of Quantrill's famous raid on Lawrence, Kansas, in the early days of the Civil War and later participates in the Battle of Westport. Red find the woman of his dreams in the beautiful Melissa--only to lose her when she learns of his past and flees, taking with her the secret that could save Red from a life of crime.

Adam, schoolteacher, historian, state senator and newspaper columnist, chronicles the lives of his friends and the growth of Kansas City in the journal he faithfully keeps through the years. Through him, we learn about the turbulent political system that puts Jack on top--and frequently threatens his life. We experience such history making events as the great Centennial celebration in 1900, and the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904.

Thoroughly researched and based on fact, G. P. Schultz's novel will take you back to early Kansas City. It's all here--from a rollicking romp through the rapidly growing frontier town to a night at the opera; from the opening of the Hannibal Bridge across the wide Missouri in 1869 to the tornado of 1886 and the Great Flood of 1903. You'll experience it all, with a cast of characters that will alternately make you laugh and cry, in a book you neither will be able to put down nor forget.
