Willow and the boys written by Rick Maier

Willow and the boys

Roy Bowers wins a 160-acre lot in the 1832 Georgia land lottery. He leaves his successful Macon business in the hands of his oldest son and takes his sixteen-year-old boy with him on a long journey through the frontier to North Georgia. Roy finds the land rich in resources, and Tim meets a lovely half-Cherokee maiden. Still, the Bowers must overcome attacks and take big risks in developing a thriving community along the Toccoa River in the North Georgia mountains. The 1800s were a monumental time in Georgia's history-westward expansion into Cherokee lands, slavery, gold fever, epidemics, railroads, depressions, the Civil War, emancipation, Reconstruction, industrial breakthroughs, and the New South era. Georgia's rich history comes to life through the adventures of three generations of the Bowers family.
