Overview

Jean Henry Mead's novel Escape is a powerful story of a young woman who hides her identity from outlaws. The author writes lyrically of Wyoming settlers and rough men who ran wild on the frontier. She brings courage, conviction and spiritual beauty to this fine story.

~Richard S. Wheeler, award-winning author

The stage is set for nonstop action in this debut novel by Jean Henry Mead with its delightful blend of western fiction and Wyoming history. The dialogue rings true and is peppered with humor, making for a thoroughly enjoyable read. The early introduction and resulting misadventures of Tom "Peep" O'Day (who is eventually blamed for the bungled bank robbery of Belle Fourche, South Dakota) adds a wonderful balance to the storyline and offers an interesting insight into members of the wild bunch. An added bonus is the epilogue which details each gang member's fate. If it's a wild ride you're looking for, Escape will take you on an adventure that will leave you breathless.

    A Thoroughly Enjoyable Read!

It had a interesting historical feel and some really great characters. The most important thing I learned was that it seemed really difficult to keep track of horses back then...someone was always out to steal them." "I thought that overall the book was pretty entertaining. I liked the vivid feel of the outdoors and what was probably a good description of the standard of life at the time. Also, can't beat the price!" "Keep a good hold on your horses!" ~Patricia Kenworthy
