The Indie Book of the Day for 1st of March, 2013!
At first glance, the Lawes’ Raiders series of historical novels would appear to be memoirs written by an old man with a sixth-grade education who played a major role in 19th Century Texas. The Captain of a Texas Rangers Company sent to deep South Texas to protect the region’s people, he tells tales of lawmen fighting the violence of Mexican incursions into the U. S. His simple, often ungrammatical words, tell much more than stories of Texas History. They—all 4,046 handwritten pages of them—speak of simple men with a simple wisdom that does not question miracles, be they the magic that enables a gentle man to commit unspeakable violence or the miracles that are inexplicable.
Call it a “saga” or an “epic,” but Lawes’ Raiders is about a quest of one simple man to become a person he never thought he could be. It is also a story of power and its impact on a good, simple soul. As the books’ covers say, Daryl Aaron Lawes’ story is one of “bravery, comradeship, violence, loss and some miracles, too, (with some guffaws thrown in, just for fun).”
