Cover by Adam Reinhard

Ben Cartwright finds himself torn in three when a threat comes against all of his sons at the same time, as he struggles to stay within the law and yet protect everything he loves. Using the famous burning map as cover and historical footnotes, the novel’s backdrop with intense historical research includes page-turning action with cattle drivin’, mining, timbering, land slidin’, a house fire and even Hop Sing gets into the act at the shooting end of a rifle. With a little romance and some psychological drama, this western thriller shows how love of family can overcome all obstacles. Permission to publish obtained from David Dortort, producer of the series, in 1996; the novel is now in 3rd edit.

REVIEWS: 

“I VERY HIGHLY (HIGHLY, HIGHLY) RECOMMEND Felling of the Sons to every Western genre enthusiast, especially those that hold Bonanza in high-esteem.—Patricia Spork, Reviewer, ebook, Reviews Weekly.

Felling Of The Sons was the first book in years to keep me spellbound. I had to force myself to put it down. I have been an avid fan of the Cartwright family for years, having spent a great deal of time in the Lake Tahoe area and/the "gold country" - despite being a native of Southern California. So to envision each character and the settings was pure joy. Lest someone think these are just the ramblings of some hick -- I have an MBS, a Bachelors in English, am a former Air Force officer, and a former county firefighter. --Ed Wilmes

I´ve read your book "Felling of the sons" and I´m now reading "Mystic Fire". I was never a big fan of Bonanza -just a big fan of Pernell Roberts. In my opinion most of the episodes were not elaborate. I´ve always missed something. While reading "Felling of the sons" I thought "wow! That´s the way Bonanza should be! Thrilling from cover to cover –Heike Simon, Germany
