Note: we are now hosting on Zoom webinars. You will be prompted to enter a first name and email upon joining. You may see a window reading "waiting for host to start webinar," but sit tight--you will be admitted as soon as we begin broadcasting live! You will be able to submit questions using the Q&A feature.
"This is a love letter to the small-town, rough-and-tumble, fisticuff-heavy ranch life of fifty years ago. ... A quick-moving, plainspoken, mostly charming exploration of the hardscrabble life of the livestock rancher of old."
-- Kirkus Reviews
"The murder mystery propels the story, but Rowland's clear-eyed look at mid-twentieth-century rural life provides a satisfying portrait of the frayed bonds within a community whose members must sometimes depend on people who repel them."
-- Publishers Weekly
