This fascinating book portrays the Civil War through the eyes of one Virginia farming family.

The Taylor's Civil War, a novel by Lowell F. Volk, has been released by Dorrance Publishing. This moving, action-filled story of the Taylor family, farmers in Virginia at the time of the Civil War, portrays the family's struggle and hardship during this time when they too suffer loss of life and property.

The Civil War causes unwanted change for the Taylor family, who simply wants to farm, raise cattle, and live a peaceful existence. The author describes the family's patriotism but also their need for reprisal after one of the sons is killed by renegades under the guise of the military. Once the Civil War is over, the conflict continues as they deal with thievery in the form of the carpetbaggers, who prey on the South at war's end.

Volk is a native of Minnesota, currently retired and living in Pleasant View, Colorado, where he is a member of the Montezuma County Sheriff's Posse. Lowell and his wife, Mary Lou, have five children: Terri, Scott, Paula, Lowell Jr., and Kathy. Lowell has an MBA from the University of La Verne and enjoys horseback riding, deer and elk hunting, and early American history.

The Taylor's Civil War is a 188-page paperback with a retail price of $18.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-0243-6. For more information please visit our virtual pressroom at or our online bookstore at
