Jim Janke's

With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on
to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle
and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish
a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.

I am in love with 19th Century American history, especially the Civil War (the defining event in U.S. history) and the Old West. I have a huge library of books on the Civil War and I visit Civil War sites regularly. I have been to Gettysburg many times. I also have many books on Western history and travel the West extensively. I write Westerns and someday I'll also be writing Civil War novels as well. Both the Old West and the Civil War are filled with fascinating and exciting stories.

Visit my Old West page and my Home page for lots more resources on other subjects, like the Old West, writing and writers, nautical subjects and novels, flight, etc..

You will also find there complete information on my own novels. Or simply click on the images below. The following novels are now available as e-books:
