Three engaging tales by a master of historical fiction!
Tales of Country Stores, Windmills, and Cattle Ranches . . .
The country store was the social center of rural America in the last century. Serving as a community center, trading post and local post office, people gathered around the pot-belly stove to reminisce, share local news, and collect necessary supplies. Chandler’s Store is one woman’s memoir of small town life as seen from across the scarred countertop and front window of her store.
In Montana Moon, Elizabeth Thompson is married by proxy to a cattleman in far-off Montana. Unsure what to expect, she arrives to a squeaking windmill, unending starry nights, and more isolation than she can bear. With the rancher’s two children to raise, Elizabeth learns that family becomes everything when everything else is taken away.
City boy vs. country man . . . A rebellious teen leaves his Chicago life to become a “dude” on his uncle’s vast Wyoming spread. He butts heads with experienced ranch hands, saves a burning barn, and allows skeptical strangers to become his new family in The Education of Jackson Humboldt.
Life as experienced in the Wild West becomes reality again on each page, and once you pick up this book, you won't want to put it down until the final page is turned.
