When Luke Taylor’s father leaves home to fight for the South in the Civil War, it’s up to Luke to be the man of his family. Luke struggles to keep his family safe as Union soldiers march through the South burning crops, destroying buildings, and killing livestock. When a band of renegades dressed as Union soldiers attacks his home, killing his brother and beating him and his mother, Luke must leave the farm to find his father.
Luke and his father return to see their farm facing a new threat—carpetbaggers from the North who threaten to seize their land. When Luke and his father resist, Luke has to kill a carpetbagger to defend his father. The leader of the carpetbaggers reports to the Union army that Luke killed his man in cold blood. Luke must either stay with his family and risk being hanged or leave his home forever in search of a better life in the West.
In Luke Taylor—Westward Bound, Luke races against time, Union soldiers, and bounty hunters on his way to join a wagon train in Independence, Missouri. With only a packhorse, a few days’ supply of food, and a stowaway dog, Luke heads west on a tense, adventure-filled journey of survival. Luke Taylor—Westward Bound takes readers along on a thrilling quest for freedom, peace, and ultimately, revenge.

The Taylor’s Civil War, a novel by Lowell F. Volk, has been released by Dorrance Publishing. This moving, action-filled story of the Taylor family, farmers in Virginia at the time of the Civil War, portrays the family’s struggle and hardship during this time when they too suffer loss of life and property.
The Civil War causes unwanted change for the Taylor family, who simply wants to farm, raise cattle, and live a peaceful existence. The author describes the family’s patriotism but also their need for reprisal after one of the sons is killed by renegades under the guise of the military. Once the Civil War is over, the conflict continues as they deal with thievery in the form of the carpetbaggers, who prey on the South at war’s end.
Volk is a native of Minnesota, currently retired and living in Pleasant View, Colorado, where he is a member of the Montezuma County Sheriff’s Posse. Lowell and his wife, Mary Lou, have five children: Terri, Scott, Paula, Lowell Jr., and Kathy.
