"Maria knew not to ask Eli where he would be going or when he might return. She felt certain that her birthing time was very close and hoped that Eli might be home early. Then she found herself hoping that he would not be coming home at all."

Oklahoma Territory 1889: Eli Brandt is a cruel and profane tyrant, quick tempered and physically brutal. A victim of her abusive husband, Maria endures his frequent rages with a futile hope that things might somehow change. Both Maria and their son Jacob endure years of Eli's cruelty and suffer his punishments until Jacob rebels in defense of himself and his mother and their lives are forever changed.

About the Author

M. Timothy Nolting and his wife, Deb, reside on a small acreage adjacent to the Village of Bushnell, Nebraska. An aspiring writer since his high school days, Tim was born and raised in Northeastern Kansas as a fourth-generation member of a farm/ranch family. Migrating from Kansas to Colorado and finally to the high plains of Nebraska, Tim enjoyed a professional career that allowed him to travel the U.S. and abroad. However, he claims that his most favored place is where he is now, with family nearby.

Tim is recognized regionally for his writing and presenting cowboy/western poetry, and for short personal and historical essays, which have been published weekly in several local newspapers and periodicals. Tim's long held interest in the history of the American West and observations of human nature conspired to create this novel, ...By the Way They Treat Their Horses. Tim is currently writing an autobiographical narrative as well as an historical non-fiction work of the range cattle industry beginning in the late 1860s, across the Nebraska Panhandle and adjacent regions of Colorado and Wyoming.
