Legend of Yankee Boy Basin – Western Fiction – Price $3.99
In the 15th century B.C., Tusami, The Great Spirit of the Nephretari Tribe, judges His people fallen but forsakes them not, to offer them deliverance entwined in a legend long held sacred in the land of the Ute Indians high among the Colorado Rockies.
Set in 1880 and steeped in gold, dark hearts and enlightened souls, the Legend of Yankee Boy Basin is an iconoclastic adventure that follows Eagles of the Clouds, the Chief Elder of the ancient Nephretari, as he labors to free his people from Tusami’s centuries-old revenge of hard labor and imprisonment. Using the everyday lives of a horse wrangler gone miner, a young Indian mother, and the respected chief of the Uncompahgre Ute, Eagles of the Clouds orchestrates the unfolding of the ancient legend of lost gold and horrible consequences in an attempt to save his lost tribe by way of their “Ceremony of Redemption”, left unfinished so many centuries in the past.

Heller’s Canal – Western Fiction – Price $2.99
Sam Claiborne’s spirit roams the mountains and sleeps with the cougars and the grizzlies.
Weary of hunting the dwindling buffalo, he dreams of leaving the high plains in Colorado Territory in the summer of 1872 and returning to his beloved Rocky Mountains.
In search of water, he comes upon the new farming town of Littleton, along the South Platte River near Denver. “Just resupply and rest Cactus and Ballou,” he says as he leads his roan horse and Anatolian shepherd into town.
Young Emma Garrison feeds his belly and his imagination, passing on the news of severe drought. “The South Platte’s gone dry along with most of the range ponds. Only water left is the Latigo Bolson on the Triple–H ranch, owned by Harland Heller and his son, Hank.”
Sam senses foul play, follows his hunches and turns up dammed waters, untapped oil reserves and dangerous intrigues to own and control them.Heller’s Canal is the beginning; Sam Claiborne’s pursuit for fair play is the end.
