Many have written novels about the lives and adventure of their ancestors but most are not retold directly by the ancestor himself. In the new novel 'Fighting Bob' author Bob Stockton writes of the exciting life of his great-great-great grandfather, Commodore Robert F. Stockton.

Once described by western frontiersman Kit Carson as “the bravest of the brave,”
The Commodore’s achievements in the first half of the nineteenth century have, in his own opinion, been misinterpreted by history and his true story needs to be retold by someone with a sense of a life at sea. Under a bizarre set of circumstances the Commodore visits his descendant author and tasks him with writing the corrected history of ‘Fighting Bob’s’ many accomplishments.

“I have chosen you for this mission……”

Those words, spoken by the Commodore to his convalescing descendant begin an accounting of epic battles, duels, hand to hand fighting and military conquest covering the first half of the nineteenth century which redrew the map of the United States. As the Commodore’s tale unfolds the author, who was at first reluctant to embrace the task, becomes increasingly excited with the prospect of retelling the Commodore’s story in his - the Commodore’s - own words.


Bob Stockton was born in Trenton, New Jersey, in 1940. Leaving school in his junior year, he began his Navy career in 1957. Following Navy retirement in 1977, he earned undergraduate and graduate degrees and worked as a shipyard welder’s helper, adjunct graduate instructor, epidemiologist,
pharmaceutical trainer, and radio host. An avid motorcyclist, he currently resides in Jacksonville, Florida, in close proximity to his three children, three grandchildren, and a rather large and amiable American Bulldog named Bowser.



Fighting Bob is available from all on line booksellers: Amazon, B&N, Books-a-Million, etc. or may be ordered through your local bookseller.
