Share Article

The release of Spring House: Book 1 in the Westward Sagas by David Bowles was timed to coincide with the 225th Observance of the Battle of Guilford Courthouse. The fact-based historical novel tells the story of the author's ancestor Adam Mitchell, who fought in the battle while his family faced dangers and challenges on the adjacent farm that became part of the battlefield.

Dennis M. Kulvicki, President of The STAR DAY Foundation, said of Spring House, "The story is an excellent opportunity for adults and children to visualize the Colonial and American Revolutionary life and times through the eyes of one ordinary patriot and his family members."

The author will represent the San Antonio Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution and lay a wreath at the Nathanael Greene Monument during the observance at the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park, North Carolina, on Saturday, March 18, 2006. At 1:00 pm the same day, Bowles will present a seminar on the history of the Mitchell Family at Buffalo Creek Presbyterian Church in Greensboro, NC. The program, based on extensive historical and genealogical research, is free and open to the public.

From an early age, the stories his parents, aunts, and uncles told about his ancestors fascinated David Bowles. After years of research, he decided to preserve the family history for future generations. Although everything in Spring House is consistent with known history, Bowles wrote the book as fiction to create scenes and add dialogue to make the stories as exciting to his readers as his family's stories have always been to him.

According to Joseph N. Ware, Commander, Texas Brigade, Descendants of Washington's Army at Valley Forge, "outstanding scholarship furnishes a firm foundation to a very readable story of a family's adventures in the Revolutionary War period. A sure fire combination of romance, war, and hardships overcome."

Spring House is available from Plum Creek Press, Inc. at
