A Rootin-Tootin Western Adventure Novel for Boys

Author Brad Lawler uses the unlikely friendship between Hood, a half Cherokee and half Irish outcast, and Fudd, a white settler, to illustrate harmony and friendship across cultural divides.

 
PRLog - Aug. 25, 2010 - RICHMOND, Va. -- Instead of full moons and blood sucking, how about gun fights and train robberies? Set in the wilds of Virginia during the 1880’s, The Adventures of Hood and Fudd offers a refreshing alternative to the vampires and werewolves that have dominated young adult fiction over the past five years.

Author Brad Lawler uses the unlikely friendship between Hood, a half Cherokee and half Irish outcast, and Fudd, a white settler, to illustrate harmony and friendship across cultural divides.  

Hood has picked the perfectly wrong time to return to Iron Gate.  The town, plagued by the attacks of a dangerous mountain lion, is on edge.  Worse yet, a mysterious stranger confronts a gang of outlaws—including Emmett Stone, the man who murdered Hood’s father four years ago.

Rejected by those who call him only “Half-Breed,” Hood must figure out where his allegiances lie.  What does it mean to be both white and Cherokee?  To answer his questions, Hood relies on the wisdom of his grandfather, Chief Namar, the Christian faith instilled in him by his father, and his friendship with Fudd.  

As an avid hunter and fisherman, Lawler has a great appreciation for life in the wilderness. After growing up as a prolific reader of Westerns, Lawler was inspired to bring this genre to young audiences. With The Adventures of Hood and Fudd, Lawler hopes to spark a revival of the cowboy-and-Indian, gun shootin’, huntin’, rootin’-tootin’ adventures that will excite generations to come.

Lawler was once a part of the booming construction industry as a homebuilder, but as the economy began to plummet, he decided to follow his dream of living off the land, like his grandfather.  Now, Lawler characterizes himself as “a gentleman farmer,” raising animals on his farm in Midlothian, Virginia and is growing a vineyard in an effort to create a winery.

About Capital City Books:
Editing, designing and marketing good books is our passion.
As a small, independent book publisher, we're constantly innovating--seeking new ideas, new manuscripts and new readers.
We understand that every book is an expression of a writer's nearest and dearest thoughts and feelings. Writing a book takes guts. It involves soul. Seeing a manuscript evolve from idea to published book--eventually taking on a lovely life of its own--is both glorious and terrifying. That's why we work to honor the unique nature of each book project, carefully guiding each manuscript through the publishing process.
Please support talented, dedicated writers by browsing our bookstore, buying books locally, and passing them along to friends.
If you have written a book, let us know. We love reading new work--whether fiction, non-fiction or poetry-- and talking about all aspects of the book publishing process.
