Waggoners Gap book cover
It is in Waggoners Gap, a spiritual place with

unique beauty and breathtaking vistas overlooking the Cumberland Valley, that two disparate families fight for survival and success in the dark decades surrounding World War II.

The saga winds from Waggoners Gap through area colleges to Army training bases, ships at sea, battlefields in Europe and the Pacific, and back again as its truly colorful characters influence each other throughout the decades. In spite of the deadly hardships overseas and dark dealings on the home front, Waggoners Gap draws the players together and repels them like a spinning magnet.

Waggoners Gap is a truly remarkable story of the trials and tribulations of an all-American family in war and peace... full of sex, love, and war... you will not want to put it down.

​Chuck de Vlaming, LtCol. USAF (ret.)

Waggoners Gap is a compelling read. As a former Cobra pilot, I especially enjoyed the combat flying sequences in Europe and the Pacific.

Herb Caddell, retired Deputy U.S. Marshall
