Legends of the Lost Causes
by Brad McLelland and Louis Sylvester




Overview -

A band of orphan avengers. A cursed stone. A horde of zombie outlaws.

This is Keech Blackwood's new life after Bad Whiskey Nelson descends upon the Home for Lost Causes and burns it to the ground.

With his home destroyed and his family lost, Keech will have to use the lessons he learned from Pa Abner to hunt down the powerful Char Stone. Luckily, he has the help of a ragtag team of orphans. Together, they'll travel through treacherous forests, fight off the risen dead, and discover that they share mysterious bonds as they search for the legendary stone. Now it's a race against the clock, because if Bad Whiskey finds the stone first...all is lost.

But Keech and the other orphans won't hesitate. Because they're more than just heroes.
They're Lost Causes.

Legends of the Lost Causes marks the thrilling start to an action-packed middle grade series by debut authors Brad McLelland and Louis Sylvester.

"This is a fun and exciting story, written with the utmost respect for the Osage culture." --Wah-Zha-Zhi Cultural Center

"A rip-roaring adventure in the Wild West, filled with cowboys, magic, and a horde of undead villains that'll have you hunkered down in your bedroll, turning pages long after the campfire has died down." --Heidi Schulz, author of the New York Times bestselling Hook's Revenge

"I don't get to use the word rollicking enough but there's no other word for this book: a rollicking adventure filled with mystery and magic that crackles like a brush fire." --Emma Trevayne, author of The House of Months and Years

"Thrilling, dark, and full of heart, this is a Western like none I've ever read. I loved it." --Stefan Bachmann, author of The Peculiar and The Whatnot

"McLelland and Sylvester imbue the adventure with a Louis L'Amour-esque flair refreshed for today's readers by the thoughtful incorporation of American frontier history and Osage culture. This is an easy read for fans of Westerns like Bowman's Vengeance Road." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
