SAPULPA, Okla. (PRWEB) August 18, 2014

After hearing stories about her great grandfather, author Shirley McLain felt compelled to share the courage and strength of the man who was the familys foundation. Dobyns Chronicles (published by Xlibris) is a powerful story that follows the life of a young man who never let lifes avalanche of trials and struggles bring him defeat.

Charlies life began in northeast Texas near Bonham, on the Red River. His Cherokee mother and cowboy father strove to survive on their river valley ranch. Tragedy ended this way of life for Charlie in 1888. After the early death of both parents, readers will follow Charlie through Chickasaw Territory and on to McAlester in eastern Oklahoma.

His journey is a story of a changing way of life and the many adaptations he made to survive. Charlie's strong passion for life equipped him for survival as he raised his siblings with likeability and dignity. This is not only a story of loss, misfortune, hard times and heartbreak but also of love, determination, kindness, joy and spirituality.

As readers follow Charlies life through his adventures, they will see what shaped the man he became and that of his family for generations. Poignant and inspiring, Dobyns Chronicles is a captivating celebration of the remarkable life of Charlie Dobyns.
