delsverein: The Sowing is Volume 2 of the Adelsverein Trilogy, following the fortunes of German settlers who came to Texas seeking land and political freedom in the 19th century through the auspices of the Mainzer Adelsverein - a consortium of German nobles who formed a corporation and took up a land grant in the Republic of Texas.

In the fifteen years which have passed since "Vati" Steinmetz and his children came from Germany to Texas, they have prospered. His older daughter Magda has married former Texas Ranger Carl Becker, born him children and helped him build a happy life as a cattle rancher in the beautiful valley of the Guadalupe River. Vati's son-in-law Hansi Richter prospers as a farmer, and his son Johann has returned from years of study in Germany to become a doctor. But his beautiful adopted daughter Rosalie is in love ... with a man who intends to serve in the Confederate Army! Texas has voted for secession and to join with the Confederacy. The German settlers in the Texas Hill Country are opposed to slavery, and to secession; what will happen to them now that they will be seen as enemies in their new homeland?

Ideals, friendship and cruel circumstance clash with the coming of civil war to the Hill Country, bringing Carl Becker and Hansi Richter into mortal danger from the 'hanging band' - a pro-Confederate lynch mob, while Johann and his twin brother Friedrich are drawn into fighting on opposite sides; Johann with the Union Army, Friedrich with the Frontier Regiment.

Adelsverein: The Sowing continues the epic story of how one family became American, through the brutal tragedy of the Civil War!.

From the Author:

When I looked around for a project to follow up To Truckee's Trail, I decided that I still wanted to write about the American frontier, but I wanted to do another relatively unknown story. After some weeks of considering some other characters and events, I realised that in living in San Antonio, Texas, I was just right down the road from a fantasic unknown story ... the 8,000 or so German immigrants who were recruited to come to Texas to settle an entrepeneur grant and then essentially thrown on their own devices when the recruiting organization, the Mainzer Adelsverein collapsed. Here they were - straight from Germany, to the wild Texas frontier. I started researching, of course, and found so much good materiel, that I simply had to follow the adventures of the family that I created to tell the story to a second book (about what happened during the Civil War, when they were Unionists in a Confederate state) and then how they picked themselves up afterwards, and very gradually become American.
