Slocum Westerns are the longest running series of Westerns ever written, encompassing over 400 books, all of which are published under the pen name Jake Logan. The books have been written by a number of authors, and all feature John Slocum as the protagonist.
John Slocum is a basically decent man who will do whatever it takes to survive what life in the Western Frontier throws at him. A Confederate soldier who lost his ancestral home to carpetbaggers after the Civil War and never went back, Slocum is as tough a gunfighter as they come. Slocum's adventures have taken him across most of the American West. He has been a soldier, slave, stage driver, shotgun guard, bank robber, lawman, pioneer, cowboy, sheepherder, poor man, rich man, gambler, and drifter.
