Editorial Reviews

Network54 - Chris J
“The Long Canyon Mountains is a real page-turning western by Brian Kelling, member of the Western Writers of America. The author's weaving of a fine love story into the plot is refreshingly candid since it's told from the man's point of view. It's also surprisingly touching, as men don't often admit to such feelings. A nice touch. All in all, a really good read. Could almost be a romance.” Chris J., Network54
Roundup Magazine
"A good traditional Western with superb sense of place." Roundup Magazine book review.
Building Rainbows - Chuck Faul
“Another great Western by Brian Kelling. The Long Canyon Mountains is Kelling's second western, this one based in New Mexico. All the usual elements are here: battle for grazing; beautiful woman; gold and silver. But especially satisfying is his inclusion of John J. "Blackjack" Pershing as a young officer, and also Elfego Baca -- both historical figures from this era. A GREAT read!” Reviewed by Chuck Faul, Building Rainbows

Meet the Author

Brian D. Kelling is a western fiction writer whose work earned him membership in the prestigious Western Writers of America. Without a doubt, he loves the West and it shows. Brian has owned horses, panned for gold, built his own tipi, discovered petroglyphs, and followed the old trails. To prepare for his novels, Kelling still travels to each and every setting - researching, plotting, and "getting the feel of the country." With five books to his credit and more on the way, there's nothing he likes better than telling a good story.

Read an Excerpt

Former prospector Buck Ford walked into the government land office in Socorro and stepped to the wall map. Tracing a rectangle with his finger, he looked over at the man behind the counter and enquired, "Anybody own this spot?"

The bespectacled land clerk, deep in a book, was at first irritated by the interruption. But after seeing the location indicated by the obvious newcomer, his expression changed to one of surprise. "Not unless you like trouble."

Buck raised an eyebrow. "What's that supposed to mean?"

"Means nobody owns it legal, but somebody does in another way."

"What other way is there?"

The book-reader frowned. "New around these parts?"

"Maybe. How about answering the question."

Irritation creased the man's face and he closed the book with a snap. "Alright. Man by the name of Myron Grafton uses it of a summer. Rafter H Ranch, down there at the bottom of Long Canyon. Powerful man with a bad temper. Got madder'n hell at me when I wouldn't let him file on this very piece of property." He reached out, tapping his finger on a smaller map he'd produced to emphasize the words.

    Another Great Western

    This second western by Mr. Kelling is even better than his first. Much more detailed; many more characters. Especially delightful was his use of John J. "Blackjack" Pershing, and Elfego Baca. Territory descriptions were excellent, as before. Ditto for moral standards. You really feel like you're there, transported back into the old west. Like it's YOU on that horse. YOU behind that gun. YOU falling for that gorgeous waitress. This book is not to be missed.
