About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

Huntsville is a post Civil War historical novel. The story begins in 1874, nine years after Lee’s surrender. Handsome Jacob Magruder, a former Texas Ranger, is just being released from the state prison facility at Huntsville having received a pardon from the governor. Though Magruder’s home is in Nacogdoches---a hundred miles away---he is held there in this little southeast Texas town by the plight of beautiful Hilda Gersemann. Her husband has just been robbed and killed by highwaymen as the couple journeyed from Crocket to Houston. This heinous crime has left the widow devastated and penniless, and Magruder vows to catch the killers and recover the money for the lady. Huntsville is a tale of adventure, intrigue, and romance.

About the Author

The author grew up in Houston, and at 17 joined the United States Marine Corps. After his service in WW2, he enrolled in the University of Houston, choosing to study engineering. This became his lifework, and it took him to many different states in the US. Two of his children were born in Cleveland, Tennessee where he was engaged on a 3-year long project for the Bowater Paper Corp. He was involved in the modernization and expansion of a wide range of industrial plants during his career, and held professional engineer licenses for Texas, Tennessee, and Louisiana. He finally retired after 40 years in his chosen profession. The author is a Civil War history buff, and an avid reader of books on this era. Several years ago, after reading The History of Huntsville and Walker County, the plot for this novel was conceived.
