Summary: [1] Charlie, a devout Christian, survives a deadly ambush only to be saddled with a hurt Indian maiden. Knowing that he must help her, he takes her with him through hostile Indian Territory and seeks safety at an Army fort. There he encounters a lustful commanding officer and his son who set out to eliminate Charlie and possess the maiden for their pleasure. The plot gets complicated when Charlie’s new friends are under the commanders orders and control. He finds that the only avenue that God morehas left him is to surrender to the commanding officer and be tried for murder; with a death sentence waiting at the end. Charlie’s life is totally out of his control as he waits to see what God will decide to do. [2] Excerpts from the author write-up found in the 'Riverside Neighbours' section of 'The Daily Gleaner' distributed in Fredericton, N.B. Canada on September 19th, 2009. Charter Settlement resident new author by Brenda MacMinn For This Week Growing up, Porter loved the old westerns by authors like Zane Gray, Louis L'Amour, Max Brand and E. B. Mann. "The moral aspect of their characters, to me was cowboy." "In the 60's a new breed of western came along where they used Jesus as a swear word and other modern swear words and I didn't like that," he explained. "We were losing the moral character of the western novels especially when Louis L'Amour died." His first attempt, Charlie: The Family Edition, has launched him into the field of authorship. In this book he adapted the names of people in his family and special friends to the characters that unfolded on the pages and he honoured his father by giving the hero his father's name, Charlie. Throughout the book, the names of Betty, Stephanie and Scott, Lisa and Jody are character names he uses that belong to his family members. Jim and Bob are special friends for whom he has named characters as well. Porter's son, Scott, posed for the front cover of the novel. "The Family Edition will be the only edition using these names," said Porter. It fits in the category of Christian western and is a readable book that demands it be completed soon after starting it. Porter's knowledge of old firearms is true to the models he names in the book. His character of Charlie is portrayed as a man with exceptional gifts with his hands, his Christianity and his strength which he wasn't afraid to use when needed. He motivated the people to step up to provide the solution to his problems at hand. "It made heros of the people," said Porter. less
