Part of the Shawnee series:
  • Shawnee

Sixteen-year-old Lon Pearce is an orphan who has lost both his parents separately at the hands of the same man, local business owner Carl Teverence. Grief-stricken by their murders, he heads into town, half-cocked and ready to take his vengeance... only things don’t quite turn out the way he’d hoped. Teverence and his men see him coming a mile away. They turn the tables on him with ease, and Lon is lucky to escape with his life.

Alone and hunted, Lon is forced to leave everything he knows and loves behind, even his name. Now known only as Shawnee, he journeys west across the plains on a long and lonely trail. He hasn’t forgotten the score he has to settle, but he needs to learn the skills to make it possible. He lends a hand to those he finds in need along the way—even when it forces him further outside the law.

Will Shawnee find his way back home to deliver the justice he so desperately desires? Will he have learned enough to defeat Teverence and his men, or will he wind up in a shallow grave next to his parents? And even if he is successful, will he have enough integrity—enough of his soul remaining—to think of himself as a good man? An action-filled adventure of loss and revenge, Bob Giel’s Shawnee will have you on the edge of your seat until the very last page.

About the Author

Bob Giel was born in New York City and now lives in New Jersey. Throughout his life, he has spent time in the East and Midwest, but has never resided in any area that could be termed the West, a bit strange for someone who writes Westerns. However, having loved the Western Genre since he was a kid, he has absorbed so much of the period through books, movies and TV that he feels as if he has been there. The colors, sounds and images stay vividly enough in his mind that he can believe he has experienced them.

The grit and the determination of the people who carved a way of life out of the frontier have helped shape the way Bob lives his life. Because of that era, he keeps his word, he finishes what he starts and he is a true friend. While he was always interested in writing, life got in the way, that is, until he retired. With the decks cleared, he began writing and never looked back.
